[The film] has much to recommend, including gorgeous New Mexico landscapes, sumptuous digital cinematography and -- as we might expect from Klein -- virtuoso editing.

There are hints along the way of the socioeconomic strife that Klein wants to explore, yet they become lost in a muddled screenplay that doesn't establish sympathy for its protagonist or his plight.

"After the Fall" belongs to a type of movie that is too lazy to connect the dots and fill in the blanks between its supposedly teachable moments.

Scanlon's desperate dive into a life of armed robbery is simply not believable, despite Bentley's best efforts.
