    Man is this movie good. The best film by Schumacher. Michael Douglas was so chilling, he should have been nominated for an Oscar. This movie wouldn't fly with any of today's audiences, and that's what makes it so unique and fun to watch.

    An amazing social commentary on the state of America, its violence and racial discrimination. All coming from the guy that brought us the Bat credit card.

    - A great idea; like a foreshadowing of the onslaught of Breaking Bad type shows, but isn't executed in a wholly engaging fashion, nor as creatively done as it could be.
    - It's made in a Hollywood style that simply drags this story down. The ending isn't nearly as devastating or thought-provoking as it could be, subtly is definitely not on this film's list, and after the first half of shenanigans it ends up as a run of the mill…

    In typical Hollywood fashion, "Falling Down" is a film that takes a dark and even gruesome premise and softens it with plot conventions and an amiable top-down perspective, probably so it could've been more "marketable". Like with a lot of films of its era, in "Falling Down" we're given a few "relatable" characters to follow so we don't feel quite as bad for laughing with the lunatic psychopath that it's really about.

    Whereas D-FENS (Michael Douglas) is the center of…

    There's pre-Pulp Fiction L.A. and there's post-Pulp Fiction L.A. Falling Down is obviously pre-Pulp Fiction L.A. but post-L.A. riots L.A. There is commentary on modern L.A. life but that bubble of deconstructed narrative hasn't popped yet so the movie feels extremely on the nose and so straightforward that the titular "falling" should really be "fallen" because Douglas is ready to explode within the opening scene. There's really nowhere for him to begin except at 11 and from there, try to…

    It kinda started on a random note and didn't really explain why Michael Douglas was doing what he was doing. Pretty much everyone he encountered (except Robert Duvall) was super douchey to him. The idea is interesting, but it's poorly executed.

    I hated every single one of the characters. Every. Last. One. Its all so horribly written! Its like the only way the director could make conflict is if every character that Michael Douglas (who was a one dementional psycho) or Robert Duvall (who was a one dementional everyman) encounter be a total douchebag. Interactions made zero sense, cause no rational human being is that angry to a person who hasn't done anything (yet). Yet this movie makes that particular senario…

    As Bill Foster, I can’t bear some people sometimes. Because society leaves much to be desired and can make easily somebody get mad. So at a certain point I sympathize with Foster's upset therefore the film got me into it from the very beginning. It goes from almost comedy to drama as we follow a kind of psychopath Bill Foster (Michael Douglas) on his way home while a strong criticism of society is being made.
