The Fall: Just as Amazing on Paper

Continuing my shameless cheerleading for one of the most stunning films I've ever seen, I present to you a wonderful gift I received from one of the film's publicists. Since The Fall expands its distribution across the US as of this Friday, May 30th, I thought this would be the perfect piece of flash to excite a few of you to get out and see it this weekend. I highly encourage you to! Outwardly, the book is simply a tangible glimpse at the film. Yet with The Fall's incredible visuals, this 80-page, 14" x 17" tome becomes something much more artful and certainly more than just a coffee table book. Showing it to friends, they actually suggested - shockingly - to frame a few pages. Tearing a out a page? Never. But that tells you how stunning this material really is. A few snaps of the inside can be seen below.

Most of the photos were captured by Stephen Berkman during the film's production. Since the book was created before the film was finished, the director, Tarsem Singh, actually adopted the volume's typography for the main title and end credits. Thanks goes out to Stefan Bucher for creating such a wonderful book and providing some of the graphics you see here.

The Fall is directed by Indian filmmaker Tarsem Singh, of that wacky movie The Cell previously. The script was written by Dan Gilroy (Two for the Money), Nico Soultanakis, and Tarsem Singh. The Fall debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is already showing in limited release around the US.

Go see The Fall this weekend!

  • I can't wait to see this - I was just about hypnotized by the beauty of the trailer. I don't even care what the story is - it looks astounding.

    Stefan Bucher is a talented designer. Not without humor, he did a great series of on the fly video clips of random ink drawn "monsters." I'm a big fan. I heard pros and cons of the movie, but from just the imagery alone, I'd definitely watch it. You are so lucky to have that book! Im so envious!

    I am so jealous that you have this book. I would die for it. I am in love with this movie. Also, any word on soundtracks or dvd release dates?
  • Anne Salazar
    Is this book for sale?????? I LOVED this film, have seen it 3 times with one more viewing this weekend. WHY wasn't it more widely shown? I would LOVE to have a copy of this book. Is it for sale anyplace? Where might I get a copy?? Thanks, Anne, Huntington Beach, CA AnneMensor@aol.com.
  • Cheers from Spain. I'd also "kill" for this book. Even a PDF version. Ya, man, awesome. In Spain we could hardly see the movie in a few cinemas, and we don't even have a BluRay edition of the film. SHAME!
