The Blot (1921)
Critic Reviews for The Blot
It touches the heart. It is sensibly and intelligently put together, points a worthwhile moral without offensive preaching and is on a live topic. In addition, its technical qualities are high in standard.
Widely regarded as Lois Weber's masterpiece, The Blot brings into perfect harmony the social commentary of her Universal work and the domestic intrigue of her later projects.
Weber films this pain-seared drama with a meticulous eye for the telling detail-worn-out shoes, torn carpet, tatty furniture-and for the nuances of social observation and concealments on which pride and shame depend.
This superb movie helps restore [Weber's] reputation.
Vivid look at income inequality and ordinary people struggling to get by, in a society where only the rich make a decent living.
Audience Reviews for The Blot
The romance here is quite average for a movie like this. The actors are average too, no one really stood out for me. Overall an okay movie, not bad but not good either.
