The Early Films of Peter Greenaway: The Falls

Product Information

Standing at a pivotal point in his filmography, poised between his earlier, witty shorts and the unique pleasures of Peter Greenaway’s post-DRAUGHTMAN'S CONTRACT oeuvre, THE FALLS is arguably the most significant film of his prolific career. Shot as a pseudo-documentary, this magnum opus dazzlingly details 92 case histories of people who have been affected by the VUE (Violent Unknown Event)—a mysterious, apocalyptic phenomenon related to birds, flying, and bizarre invented languages. Perfectly paired with it on this disc is VERTICAL FEATURES REMAKE, in which a group of self-important academics argue about the work of Tulse Luper, Greenaway’s best-known fictional character and cinematic alter-ego. Michael Nyman (THE PIANO) provided the score for both films, with back-up from the father of ambient music, Brian Eno.
