There are a great many positive things to say about this film and, after having considered those, I eventually arrived at a four star rating. One of the concepts that impressed me was the representation of the character of the inside trading money worshipper. Let's face it - many of these people are covertly (and at times even openly) admired on some levels, and "white collar" criminals are usually considered to be less despicable than the average imprisoned.felon. However, that character here let us see the vicious, brutal nature that really drives the type of man hiding inside that $1,000.00 pairs of shoes. These are men whose actions render pensions useless, result in enormous job losses, destroy companies and bankrupt stock holders. This film showed us how ugly these people can be outside of the office and why they should be considered as part of the same groups of low-lifes that contain those who commit crimes against society. Financial crimes should not be somehow "elevated", and those who commit them belong in standard prisons - not the country club, minimum security institutions where they generally end up.
"Blind" overtly offered us a pretty realistic look at one of these white collar criminals - who far too many times are portrayed as otherwise harmless individuals. I commend that.
All in all, some fairly interesting character studies and some decent observations on people who must deal with - or at times, create - life altering events while nearly past middle age. If you're considerably younger, this film probably won't have a great deal of meaning to you - especially if you aren't yet aware of the difference between "bad acting" and subtlety.
