    Political satire is so rare that it's a shame to watch the reliable Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland lend their talents to one that is blind to its own incompetence.
  2. Dark, grim, and cliched Orwellian satire.

    Though Fiennes has done (far) better work, the blurry story seems almost profound when seen through his eyes. To the extent the movie works at all, it works best when it's just the camera and Fiennes in a bleak white room.
  4. 38
    First-time writer-director Robert Edwards is nothing if not ambitious, attempting to encapsulate the history of totalitarian oppression and misguided revolutionary zeal into a broad, blunt, black comedy.
  5. Reviewed by: Jay Weissberg
    One of the more spectacular misfires of recent years, Land of the Blind's lack of originality is only slightly exceeded by its failure to work as political satire.
  6. Mr. Edwards, who wrote and directed Land of the Blind (it's his debut film), might counter that the movie is a Brechtian comedy that's not supposed to make literal sense: the big picture is what matters. But the big picture is a mess.

    This movie has been unfairly downgraded. I can't quite give it a 10 but it's a solid 9: a nasty dystopian fantasy somewhat like Gilliam's Brazil but much more willing to twist the knife. Sutherland is perfect in his role and Fiennes isn't far behind. I strongly disagree with the critics on this one. Full Review »
