A directorial debut worth seeing
Viggo Mortensen has long held my respect as an actor, and has now gained it as a director, writer (and music composer) too. Falling is a tough film to watch, but one worth watching regardless. Lance Henriksen, now in his eighties, is better than ever, and I'm glad Viggo has given him a role worthy of his talent and acting range.
The role of the father is slightly overdone in his harshness, which makes the situation - hopefully - not very relatable, but that aside, Falling is a masterful directorial debut for Viggo Mortensen, and hopefully the first of many.
