Just before we departed to catch the midnight screening of Immortals, the wife and I decided to watch director Tarsem Singh's previous film The Fall. It was every bit as breathtaking, visually, as I had expected, but for some reason I had also expected the narrative to be abstract and barely existent. Not sure why. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that while I had heard people universally praising The Fall's visual landscape, I had never heard anyone even mention the plot. Turns out, the storytelling is just as beautiful as the imagery.
