The Falls

Tucson Weekly

DIRECTED BY: Peter Greenaway

REVIEWED: 03-27-97

Director Peter Greenaway's first feature, The Falls (1980), is a post-modern chronicle of 92 characters, all with the word "fall" as part of their names. They're among the 19 million victims of a catastrophe called the "Violent Unknown Event." Hailed as an absurdist masterpiece, The Falls delivers all the lush visual imagery and downright weirdness for which Greenaway is famous.
