Falling Down proved in 1993 that Joel Schumacher can make a good movie if he tries. A minor cult favorite, Falling Down tells the simple story of a guy (Michael Douglas) trying to get home from work... only he's been laid off, he gets stuck in traffic, he can't order breakfast, his wife refuses to let him see his kid, and... well, and our anti-hero snaps, resulting in a manhunt led by last-day-on-the-job cop Robert Duvall. Two interesting characters intertwine while a raucous and wry adventure develops underneath them. Quite a fascinating and original work of art.
