Blind Review (2015): A Norwegian psychological drama about insecurities and boundaries placed on ourselves in the face of a disability

Blind is a Norwegian psychological drama about insecurities and boundaries placed on ourselves in the face of a disability. Through masterful storytelling, with a tight script from director Eskil Vogt and intricately edited, this is a film that plays with our perceptions of reality, just like it plays with the main protagonist. 497 more words
