Nice Indie Film Noir.
Eddie Miller | New York | 02/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This true film noir with a very good cast of unkown actors made in Buffalo, New York, and shot on digital video is a great return to classic balls out post war hardboiled NOIR baby!
Set against the bleak backdrop of post industrial rusted out Buffalo, New York, this tale of mythical proportions features a down and out protagonist in the form of a lovesick man-puppy who descends into hell to find his lost former lover. Trouble at home? You better believe it.
For his trouble, this sorry sonofabitch gets punched in the face at every turn, hounded by cops, seduced by a jilted baby, harassed by henchmen for the local tycoon, and bitchslapped by the native punk dujour.
It's harsh, sexy, and frightening.
Featuring SUPER hot Johanna Watts, seductive Diedre Kilgore, and the understated David Tully, this indie is not to be missed by noir fans, or fans of high quality low budget thrillers. I own it and I recommend it."
Variated Powerful Noir

"The Falls is film noir in the classical sense, but from a different (director) perspective on many fronts. Struggling filmaker David Marx (solidly performed by David Tully), the main character, is not your typical anti-hero who you vote for from the start. His old fashioned romantic sentiment combined with a selfish brat attitude brings him the trouble he appearantly asks for.
But there comes a point where you start to doubt your very first judgement on Marx. Here lays one of the strengths in this film: a psychological layer that goes distance.
Another surprise was the variaty of scenes and their atmospheres. From romantic, violent, dramatic 50s noir up towards an explosive modern day noir shootout or fightscene.
This variation applies also for the character favorite who is to be handpicked, observed or let go by the viewer.
Paul DeNigris is defenitely a next generation (one to look out for) filmaker who managed to tackle this complicated genre in an inventive, creative way.
Shot on a shoestring, and a good movie

"I wouldn't say this movie is amazing, but I would say it's quite good. The amazing thing is how this movie was shot, on Canon XL1s...
Definitely worth a watch, especially for aspiring filmmakers who think they need a few million dollars to make a feature."
Poor Acting: An Overly Amateurish Amatuer Film
Myles Christiansen | Upstate NY, USA | 01/16/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I am usually overly wordy when writing reviews. Not this time. We couldn't get further than 10 or 15 minutes into this movie. The acting was terrible: forced, pretentious, and self-conscious. It reminded me of children playing at being actors (and not talented child actors). We were so embarrassed for the actors that we had to stop wathcing the film."
