Blindness

Stimey is watching Blindness. This movie is a pretty faithful adaptation of the book by José Saramago. I loved this book so much when I first read it. I had a difficult time imagining how well a movie could capture it. I don't remember critics liking the movie version very much, but I did. I think it captured really well what is a simple but horrifying idea: What if suddenly something unexpected and terrible happened and we discovered how fragile our society really was?
