Critic Reviews of "Blindness"Chicago ReaderDecember 17, 2008
I have to admire a mainstream movie that's so overwhelmingly bleak, but that's the only real distinction of this dystopian sci-fi drama.Time OutNovember 21, 2008
Sadly, 'Blindness' may realise its director's worst fear: to produce not only an exploitation B-movie but one, paradoxically, spoiled by its own integrity and misplaced 'artistic' mise-en-scène and intentions.Los Angeles TimesOctober 18, 2008
Stilted, claustrophobic and more stylish than substantial.I.E. WeeklyOctober 06, 2008
It's the rare movie that dissects the blackness of the soul; rarer still are ones that manage to find the darkness beautiful.Christian Science MonitorOctober 06, 2008
Set in a nameless English-speaking city where people are suddenly stricken with sightlessness, it's an allegory that never rises to the level of believability.The New RepublicOctober 03, 2008
Blindness is a glum, ugly film, and pretentious in the bargain. But, perhaps least excusable, it is a fundamentally ill-conceived film, the visual depiction of a world without sight.What CultureMarch 24, 2011
Give this one a go guys, you'll see the world anew.BrianOrndorf.comJune 02, 2010
The picture is elongated to a punishing two hours of suffering, infuriatingly slavish screenwriting, and a director who should be gifted the miracle of a tripod this upcoming holiday season.Washington TimesAugust 30, 2009
Like the film's thematic elements, the camera trickery comes off as unnecessarily pretentious, the sort of thing film students applaud while mainstream audiences yawn.Times-PicayuneAugust 14, 2009
It's hard to explain all the vitriol aimed at Meirelles' film, which is a beautifully shot picture that is as haunting and profound as it is thought-provoking.MoviedexAugust 01, 2009
Takes the post-apocalyptic themes of Children of Men and blends it with the jaded morality of Lord of the Flies to questionable successBET.comJuly 03, 2009
Blindness is a film that is trying to come off as organic and artsy, but feels too contrived.
