michael wilmington on blindness

My review of Blindness will be up on Monday in Consumables, but in the meantime let me just say Michael Wilmington is one of the few people who agrees with me:
I was gripped by this all the way through, and it’s certainly an example, like Alfonso Cuaron’s fine movie of Children of Men, of the kind of intellectually and emotionally challenging material, that moviemakers with resources should tackle more often. At it’s worst, it’s a super-Twilight Zone episode. At it’s best, it’s a grand dystopian epic of social degeneration.
