Blindness

PhotobucketPhotobucketBleak and depressing drama of what happens when an epidemic of blindness affects a dystopian society. Puerile film can only be described as an ordeal. As director Fernando Meirelles punishes the viewer in scene after scene, his point appears to be how easily civilized society deteriorates when faced with a crises. The problem is, the characters do not resemble human beings, but rather freaks who wallow in filth and depravity for a mind numbing 2 hours. For example, Julianne Moore’s character, the only one who can see, sits idly by while atrocities are being committed all around her. As a result, there is no one to root for and the drama is diluted and uninvolving. A disgusting film, without a point.

  2. Sorry for all of these random visits Mark, I’m just jumping around here and I saw a comment previously mentioning a half-star rating. Had to find that review!
