Probably Brian DePalma's worst film. Not even a scene at the Cannes Film Festival can save this.

Falling is Always an Image

From the title, you would expect either a compelling exploration of the genre or cliche. This movie, like it's lead actress, is "irredeemably bad" and "makes no apologies."

Unfortunately, the filmakers believed they were on to something special. Behind the scenes, DePalma says, "For a director accused of making women victims, this woman is in no way a victim." Maybe so, but this film does play off the old victim-whore dichotomy.

Adopting a black wig and a phony french accent does not make one a femme fatale -- nor do power, sex and death at 150 frames per second. There must be depth -- not surface -- and obscurity -- not gloss. This movie was artless where it should have been sexy, and superficial where it should have been enigmatic.
