Its premise kills it
 

I'm a little bit torn as to how I feel about 'Before I Fall', because as a movie it's a horrible mess. Yet at the same time the message that it is trying to get across is quite a beautiful and profound one. The film explores the theme of appreciating every moment in your life and treating every day as if it could be your last, and it does that very well getting its message across clearly and memorably. The problem is the 100 minutes of run time it takes to get there can be very tedious. It feels like we are just getting the same information over and over again - which I suppose in a way we literally are. Putting aside the problem with the overall premise, the writing is actually quite good. There is some well written dialogue and the character arcs and interactions are believable and interesting. The acting is pretty solid from the whole cast as well. Halston Sage in particular continues to impress me in every role she takes. She has a natural ability to steal scenes without even appearing to try to do so. The main problem with 'Before I Fall' is that it cheats. It just decides to break all the laws of the universe and make up its own ones to suit its story. This is a lazy thing to do. The best movies get their message across without doing this, at least not to the extent 'Before I Fall' does. For this reason it's a film that's hard to love. You can appreciate it for what it is, and maybe it will even make you think twice about the way you live certain aspects of your life, but just judging it purely as a straight up film, it's not that good.

Formulaic, Angst-Infused Mess
 

Just saw the screener for Before I Fall. Buckle up, because it was a bumpy ride worse than I expected from Groundhog Day on teen. Before I Fall attempts to (re)tell the story of a girl trapped in the same day, desperately trying to find a means to become unstuck in time. First off, it takes every teenage movie trope and throws it at you in the plot equivalent of word salad. There's the childhood guy friend the lead should be dating but treats like dirt (until she doesn't because omg love was right there in front of her), the outcast art student with hair in her face and proverbial paint on her overalls, and the clique headed by the evil blonde who was once nice and is now an unrepentant post-pubescent monster who will (spoilers) never get her just desserts. Add to that a drilled in, overarching theme of the collateral damage dealt in choosing popularity over decency, and you have 'Fall' in a nutshell. Oh, and of course there's the whole matter of the day constantly resetting, much to the plucky heroine's consternation, a device whose means of activation is fairly obvious less than halfway through to just about everyone but the protagonist. This aspect of the film runs through all the expected options: the confused, it didn't happen day, the I can fix everything by avoiding trouble day, and the anything goes day, the last of which plays for the most, if potentially only, watchable part of this mess. Throughout these tribulations, the lead offers the occasional lofty and detached commentary, a mechanism that neither adds to the production's tone, nor preserves the attempted surprise twist at its conclusion. In terms of said end, it may just be the best part of the whole affair in that it means the angsty redux that is 'Fall' is finally at an end. Beyond that, the denouement feels rushed and its resolutions span from trivial to out and out ridiculous, ultimately succeeding in miring itself in drama and tragedy that ..
