Grim Look At The World Today

Even though this film was released in 1993, this movie still holds up exceptionally well today. The movie has a simple premise, take an ordinary man that goes through the kind of life that so many of us do nowadays (divorce, laid off), and watch as he snaps. As the lead character Michael Douglas tries to calm himself down from the normal stresses that we all have to deal with now, he encounters more and more things blocking his path to possibly being able to reach some sense of calmness and rest. Whether it's being mugged, overcharged, stuck in traffic, attacked, or just sickened by society in general, the lead character eventually goes down a path that he cannot turn back from as more and more is said about how we are as Americans today. Exceptional supporting cast featuring Robert Duvall with surprisingly solid directing by Joel Schumacher, 'Falling Down' is a classic that I believe belongs on the list of best films of the 1990s and one that I can very easily recommend.

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
