What the Critics say

24.com
Ethan van Diemen quote iconIf you’re looking for gritty, raw drama with a healthy dose of comic relief, look no further than this rap-spitting, punch-throwing, joke-cracking, cinematic ode to street philosophy.
20
ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconShowcasing that people only see what they want to see rather than the entirety of what’s in front of them (thus the film’s title), Blindspotting might just open a lot of eyes about life in the inner city.
