Falling Down - The Best Movie You Never Saw

Welcome to The Best Movie You NEVER Saw, a column dedicated to examining films that have flown under the radar or gained traction throughout the years, earning them a place as a cult classic or underrated gem that was either before it's time and/or has aged like a fine wine.

Based on the column created by Paul Shirey and currently written by Chris Bumbray for JoBlo.com, this video version of the column features narration by Bumbray and editing by Lance Vlcek.

For our tenth episode, we take a look at 1993's FALLING DOWN, starring Michael Douglas, Robert Duvall, Barbara Hershey, Rachel Ticotin, Raymond J. Barry and directed by Joel Schumacher!

I never saw this movie.

Someone at work told me I should check it out -- I think I will.

Here's another sleeper movie I highly recommend. Dialogue heavy, no action scenes.

The above 9-minute video that breaks down the background story surrounding the movie and its relevance to today's current cultural climate is interesting in itself.

The odd thing about the movie is you actually felt a little sorry for the "villian". Not sure if that was intentional or not.

It was intentional = both a victim and a villain.

This movie is not on either Netflix or Hulu -- gotta go to plan C.

Great movie. I love Duvall in this too.

Micheal Dougles' best performance besides The Game. maybe Wall Street.

Great movie. I was thinking I need to go back and rewatch Night, Mother again too.

Mother Night was a good Vonnegut book. Depressing though
