A Film of Heart and Soul
13 November 1998 | by Luna-9See all my reviews

Paradise Falls is, without a doubt, one of the best movies I've ever seen. A classic in the making, this period film captures the beauty and dignity of life in the Appalachian mountains of the 1930s in an honest manner. Expertly crafted, this film is a "must see" for anyone with a love and respect for the cinema. Director Nick Searcy's directorial technique places him in league with screen legends John Ford and Sam Peckinpah. The writing presents an honest depiction of mountain people, the cinematography is breathtakingly beautiful and the acting superb. All in all, Paradise Falls does what a movie should do - it tugs at your heart and soul.
