Falling Down's Depth,
This review is from: Falling Down  [DVD]  (DVD)
Many great reviews of this terrific film written here,which is watchable many times over. It is a social commentary as relevant now as it was in '92. D-Fens wasn't "the bad guy". There's an interesting scene where the police officer quizzes his (D-Fens) estranged wife about his violent temper and she limply admits he wasn't violent, didn't drink or take drugs, so his violent temper is only alleged. He's a misunderstood guy who seems to have lost everything, including himself. Kills in self defence and its hard to feel sorry for any character but him. He even sacrifices himself at the end. Its almost a study about the triumph of feminism over men's/father's rights. By far Douglas' finest film and worthy of its cult status. A film working on many, many levels.
