Critic Reviews for Blindfire

All Critics (6)

This is what makes Nell's film, like its protagonist, seem so responsible: it weighs the evidence, asks the right questions, and follows through on the ramifications, even if they lead somewhere uncomfortable.

Blue-on-Black violence gets put under the microscope here, shining a light on some of the nuances, municipal shenanigans and complications of deadly police response and the tangled process of justice.

This timely film, inspired by real life events very much ties in to the recent Black Lives Matter movement

August 15, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The movie has high ambitions but a very weak story with performances that do nothing to help shape this film.

August 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Blindfire is a tight thriller, effectively balancing the intense action with truly affecting dramatic moments.

June 14, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Making a movie that doesn't acknowledge the repeated racial reality of police shootings is like saying "Blue Fairytales Matter."
