Episode 430: The Fall (2008)

Special Guest: Ged Clarke
Guest Co-Hosts: Maurice Bursztynski, Brian Hoyle

Released in 2008, Tarsem Singh's The Fall is a very loose remake of the 1981 Bulgarian film Yo Ho Ho. The film stars Lee Pace as Roy, a stunt man who’s had an accident that has left him paralyzed from the waist down. While at the hospital he befriends a little girl named Alexandria (Catinca Untaru). The film goes between the two of them at the hospital and a wild world of imagination crafted by the pair as a way to keep their minds off their boredom and pain.

Brian Hoyle (The Cinema of John Boorman) and Maurice Bursztynski join Mike to discuss the film. Production designer Ged Clarke talks about the long journey of The Fall's creation.
