Before he was BDSM-obsessed businessman Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, Jamie Dornan played a serial killer in the BBC’s The Fall.

He admitted to the Los Angeles Times on Monday that in order to prepare for the role, he followed a woman off the train one day to “see what it felt like to pursue someone like that.”

The Fall 02

Ahead of The Fall’s second-season debut on Netflix, creator Allan Cubitt told journalists at this year’s Television Critics’ Association that he was “very confident” there would be a third season of the crime drama. And, knowing that before diving into the new episodes, led me to wonder whether season 2 would bring closure to the Belfast Strangler case. And now that we’ve seen the season finale the answer is… yes and no.

The Fall recap: 'The Perilous Edge of Battle'

The FAll

Nearly two seasons’ worth of cat-and-mouse intrigue have led to this: the capture and arrest of (literal) lady-killer Paul Spector. But now it’s as though we’re the feline and the writers are dangling a big juicy rodent just out of paw’s reach. Spector may be in lock down, sure, but we’re not getting what we really want: the sure-to-be-electric face-to-face confrontation between him and Stella. It was a slick trick to have Gibson not make the arrest, indeed.

The Fall recap: 'The Mind Its Own Place'

THE FALL

Blame the instant-gratification payoff of all those Law & Order/Law & Order: SVU/Law & Order: Criminal Intent/Law & Order: Parking Violation Unit marathons we’re accustomed to, but “The Mind Its Own Place” seemed in comparison a spinning-wheels hour largely devoid of action—and arrests. Sure, Gibson is hoping Spector will lead her to Rose Stagg (dead or alive), but if, as Burns suspects, Spector knows they’re onto him, it’s doubtful he would be so careless.

'Immortals': The brains behind the brawn

If he wanted to, Tarsem Singh could make an Internet cat video into an explosion of visual ecstasy. It would take place at a gorgeous outpost somewhere deep in the Gobi Desert, just as the sun starts to kiss the horizon. Enter a Siberian tiger adorned in an ornate golden harness and trailing yards of purple-and-silver rayon. Snarling, it threads between crumbling columns until it discovers a boulder of multicolored silk yarn, which it plays with in slow motion until the final bit of light leaves the sky. End scene.

Part Pan’s Labyrinth and part pretentious perfume commercial, the exotic trip The Fall is littered with operatic violence and half-drawn characters who routinely bellow at the heavens. Darling Untaru, age 6, is a wonder. But her authenticity — as a hospitalized immigrant enamored of a crippled 1920s stuntman’s (Pushing Daisies’ Pace) tales — is tainted by Indian music-video auteur Tarsem, who unabashedly details his bullying in a self-indulgent featurette and commentary.

Justine Waddell, The Fall

Tarsem, director of the indelible ”Losing My Religion” video, made his entrée into feature film with the grandly horrific The Cell, but his new film The Fall is one of those cloddish, inert vanity projects that’s dotted with striking visuals yet almost impossible to sit through. In the 1930s, a girl in a hospital hears a tale of multiethnic crime fighters — a story scattered to the point of incoherence.
