Yes, there's the obligatory "lock 'n' loll" joke - because do you expect a white writer-director to pass up such low-hanging fruit?

Where Chloe could have catharsis, instead we get stasis - but it's a pretty limbo, populated by characters you hope eventually will figure it out.

Though it suffers because of a slight narrative, the sincere emotional reactions of the fragile heroine makes the drama seem poignant.

Gray and his leads ably demonstrate how quotidian encounters and minute actions speak volumes. What's missing is space for those little details to fully speak.

In a moment when human connection feels like a rare currency, this tender slice-of-life practically doubles as a salve.
January 28, 2022
Though maddeningly dull and infuriatingly stagnant much of the time, Carla Juri is the best reason to endure blood.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Low-key and meditative to a fault, Blood nevertheless glides on the air of its gentle rhythms and solid work from a skilled cast.

A deeply frustrating experience.
January 26, 2022
A beautifully observed film that never arrives at its desired emotional destination.
January 26, 2022
Blood is singularly focused in its purpose. Gray's style is bound to rub people the wrong way, but there is plenty of beauty in his confident work.
January 25, 2022
Certainly there are moments of beauty and Juri keeps you in the film for the most part, but this is an observational work far more than a dramatic one. Long before the film is over, you are convinced that it's time for her to move on.

So little happens and pretty images can only satisfy my soul for so long.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Juri is outstanding in the role, delivering a performance of great tenderness and depth.

It's as emotionally honest as it is engaging.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
January 24, 2022
Despite its profound spiritual and romantic intentions, Bradley Rust Gray's fiercely indie Japanese excursion is a tonal and stylistic misfire that curiously alienates the viewer.
