A Tale Of Urban Reality
On the day of his daughter's birthday, William "D-Fens" Foster is trying to get to the home of his estranged ex-wife to see his daughter. His car breaks down, so he leaves his car in a traffic jam in Los Angeles and decides to walk. He goes to a convenience store and tries to get some change for a phone call, but the Korean owner does not oblige, tipping Foster over the edge. The unstable Foster, so frustrated with the various flaws he sees in society, begins to psychotically and violently lash out against them.

I love movies that keep me thinking after I watched the 90-120 mins. Falling Down is one of them. Also, Michael Douglas and Robert Duvall are fantastic.

I do not know why I like this flick, but even after the 2nd watch I still think it is a disturbing but also very good movie. Perhaps that's because I share some of D-FENS "points of view" about a country that goes to the dogs because not all immigrants are of the nice sort. Of course some times the right winged propaganda is too much, but I think there still are some valid if overdrawn points.
