Netflix Watch Instant: The Fall

This film didn't get nearly as much exposure as it should have when it was released in 2006.

Official Plot Synopsis:
Set in the 1920s, director Tarsem Singh's visually lush drama stars Lee Pace as paralyzed movie stuntman Roy Walker, who bonds with an imaginative 5-year-old named Alexandria (Catinca Untaru) as they convalesce together in a Los Angeles infirmary. To coax the girl into procuring the cache of morphine he wants from the hospital pharmacy, the suicidal Roy regales Alexandria with an elaborate fantasy about larger-than-life heroes.
What the plot doesn't tell you is that the entire film is visually stunning. They traveled all across the globe to shoot in fantastic locations, with vibrant colors and gorgeous landscapes. The story within the film allows them to take chances and input humor into this truly sad tale about a failed movie stuntman's downward spiral.

The movie is just so beautiful, I can't get over it! Directed by the same man who bright the visually arresting The Cell, this exceeds that film in both story and depth.
