Water droplets (which still need to be backlit to be seen, no matter what) would be rendered more crisply with shorter shutter speeds (hence why commercials often use strobe lighting to shoot spraying water, etc.)

But for a narrative project, you have to consider the effect on the motion of actors in the frame, not to mention most night exteriors can't afford to lose two stops for a 45-degree shutter.
