    In a nutshell, Falling Down is a gallery of American anti-exceptionalism.

    It is director Joel Schumacher's greatest legacy, likely Michael Douglas' greatest role and a piece of masterful writing from a man who literally gave us nothing else. Even more, it's a beautiful piece of cinema by cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak and based on the opening shot along I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be one of Alfonso Cuarón's great inspirations. As a result, it wholeheartedly deserves its rightful place next to films like Bad Lieutenant and American Beauty.

    Falling Down is many things: Joel Schumacher's best film, one of the most underrated films of the 1990's, a fantastic thriller, and an effective commentary on the constraints and irritations of modern society, featuring a protagonist whose actions may be extreme but is strangely and surprisingly sympathetic, and is brought to life by a career-best performance from the great Michael Douglas.

    É como se o tipo do The War of the Roses decidisse, em vez de descarregar todo a sua raiva na sua mulher, colocar-se contra a sociedade e exteriorizar todo o seu ódio, possuindo uma mala com armas e ameaçando as mais diversas classes sociais. Um basta na vida urbana diária. A acumulação de todos os aborrecimentos da vida impediu o controle na mente deste homem.

    Falling Down foi um filme que gerou controversa no seu lançamento. Foi descrito como…

    A great movie which plays around with social standing and what is truly psychologically right and wrong. Quite an interesting experience.

    A borderline personality disordered defense worker frustrated with the various flaws he sees in society, begins to psychotically and violently lash out against them.

    I'd not seen this since my early teenage years so was more than happy to watch it at a mate's house. There's an inherent fun in watching a character who has lost it just going nuts. Some elements have aged a bit and I'm not sure you'd get away with some of the racial stereotyping these days.

    Overall a fun watch that is perfect for a Friday night.

    I know this was directed by the same guy who did 'Batman and Robin', but this film

    This film just came out of nowhere and just blew my mind. I can understand why this film has some controversy, but this film.

    This film possibly gets better with age, I don't know, But this film proves that anyone can crack at any moment. Bill Foster was not born this way, he became this way, he just could not take it.

    At the end, I know I possibly might sound a little bit dramatic, but I think I almost cried at the end.

    Personal reasons by the way.
