    This film was a bit like wish fulfillment for someone who has had a really bad day. The plot tackled everyday annoyances with society but took the revenge aspect to the extreme. Even though the protagonist was clearly unravelling mentally and much of his anger was misplaced, he was easy to sympathize with as I’m sure everyone has dealt with one of the situations portrayed in this film and wished they could do something about it. The subplot involving the…

    Robert Duvall steals the show in this fantastic 1990's film.

    Michael Douglas portrays William Foster, a divorced, recently laid off man with a loose temper, driven to mental instability and violence by increasingly incensing occurrences on the way to his estranged daughter's birthday. Douglas's performance brilliantly mixes meanness and vulnerability in such a way it inspires both fearfulness and sympathy; Robert Duvall is also in terrific form as the imminently-to-be-retired cop who in living with a mentally ill wife feels a special connection with Douglas' character. Joel Schumacher's direction is very effective in mixing the film's varied tones (drama, comedy, suspense) into a cohesive whole which leads to a strong emotional pay off in the end.

    Joel Schumacher's real attempt to make a serious statement about modern society, but the movie is borderline comedy and would have fared better if it embraced the absurd humor of the situation (as other films have also done, like God Bless America). Thankfully, Michael Douglas is good at treading that line between dread and laughter, and I don't know if Robert Duvall is aping Robert DeNiro of if DeNiro learned acting from Robert Duvall, but Duvall sure gives a DeNiro…

    Michael Douglas's performance makes the film worthwhile, very forced moments but we drive on roads where the improbable and reality intersect. Photography Andrzej Bartkowiak is another feature of this film stands out and keep alguas sequences as witnesses of madness.

    ---

    La actuación de Michael Douglas hace que valga la pena la película, con momentos muy forzados pero que nos conducen en caminos donde lo inverosímil y lo real se cruzan. La fotografía de Andrzej Bartkowiak es otra de las características de esta película destaca por alguas secuencias y por mantenernos como testigos de la locura.

    A fantastic look at society that is still relevant. This film should absolutely be watched. It's thrilling and the cat and mouse game is so intriguing. Simultaneously the characters can be scarily relatable

    Falling Down is the story of a man that gets caught up in traffic, and he snaps. He leaves his car in traffic and decides to walk home. He runs into different individuals that get in his way and rub him the wrong way. Michael Douglas is pretty believable as a man gone off the edge, and Robert Duvall is also convincing as a cop trying to stop him on his last day as a cop. Overall the script is…
