Watch: Jonathan Glazer's Thrilling Masked Mob Short Film 'The Fall'
This is a must watch short film - drop what you're doing and fire it up. The Fall is the latest creation from acclaimed filmmaker Jonathan Glazer, director of the feature films Sexy Beast, Birth, & Under the Skin. This short just showed up out of nowhere in the UK on BBC a few months ago, now it's available to watch in the US online from A24. Thankfully it's not a sponsored promo for a clothing company or something else flashy like that, it's a thrilling short film that acts as biting, brutal social commentary. We're introduced to a masked mob going after a lone masked man. That's all the context here, but there's so much to think about, and so much more going on than what's on the surface. There's a simple but vital hint of a score from Mica Levi, who originally collaborated with Glazer on her breakout score for Under the Skin. More of this, please.
