The film manages to communicate the sense of deep-rooted paranoia and anxiety to its audience, the moments of claustrophobia on screen reach out and smother viewers.

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.

No matter how you look at this film, it is a chilling look at what makes us tick at our very basic nature.

Glover's occasional all-knowing commentary and the dreary music score dull the edges of what was bound to be a challenging project.

The film is far from dull or careless but it's not convincing as a lesson in human frailty. If you're going to subject us to this much degradation, it has to be irresistibly believable, not just relentless.

Blindness is not unmissable, and has awkwardly implausible moments, but it succeeds in sucking us into its peculiar world.

Blindness is a worthy film, and in many ways a beautifully made one - the opening and closing sequences are the best. But in between it's heavy, gloomy and at times pretty hard to sit through.

Owes something to the sociological study of "Lord of the Flies."

Handicapped by pretensions to making big statements, Blindness is still gripping, disturbing and intermittently powerful.

Meirelles, along with screenwriter Don McKellar and cinematographer Cesar Charlone, have created an elegant, gripping and visually outstanding film.

There is much to admire about Blindness, but this striking work is all too often undermined by its sense of its own importance.

It's a sharply realistic allegory yet its symbolic thrust - moral blindness is worse than losing your sight - is diluted by an arbitrary story that runs out of places to go.

Gripping, disturbing and intermittently powerful.

It's a confused compromise between 'seeing the real person' parable, no-fun sci-fi and self-realisation drama that's basically The Day Of The Triffids minus the killer plants.

Stylishly directed and superbly acted, this is a dark, disturbing and provocative sci-fi flick that is genuinely chilling.

At it's worst, it's a super-Twilight Zone episode. At it's best, it's a grand dystopian epic of social degeneration.
