Blindness: Because Your Eyes Are Closed

Let me start by saying that Blindness was shot beautifully and with inspiration. The cinematography clearly saught to bring the feelings of confusion and disorientation that come with blindness. The social implications of the story are clear. They show you a vision of what would happen when the world falls into chaos and anarchy. Clearly this writer doesn't hold out much hope for the Good in people. This point was well made and poignant.

But, that being said, there wasn't much more to it. There wasn't much of a tangible story and following the characters sometimes became dull and uninterestimg. This clearly wasn't a movie made to win any awards or gather a huge following. This was a movie for thinkers. A book on phylosophy will never win a great award though it be read by the greatest minds. So this movie will inspire the thinkers and ignore general audiences.

So I guess it was pretty good. But don't go knowing that you will love it. Go with your thinking cap on and an endurance to longevity.
