Richard Mowe Blindness is definitely worth a look
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Blindness is one of the most unpleasant, not to say unendurable, films I've ever seen. It is an allegory about a group of people who survive under great stress, but frankly I would rather have seen them perish than sit through the final three-quarters of the film
Jason Anderson Carefully wrought and mostly effective adaptation.
James Berardinelli Blindness is a fascinating intellectual exercise that explores how conditions and relationships might devolve in a closed community such as this one.
C. Fuchs While I'm sure there will be those who see all sorts of deep meaning in what Meirelles is showing, it's not a novel idea (see The Lord of the Flies and other such stories) and clearly not that engaging of one.
Tomatometer This allegorical disaster film about society's reaction to mass blindness is mottled and self-satisfied; provocative but not as interesting as its premise implies.
