  6. Amin Lumière's rating of the film The Blackout

  7. Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Blackout

    A formal tour de force, it might be Ferrara's most stunning direction to date. It's not going to win over any Ferrara naysayers as it plunges into even more lurid, uncompromising depths, but it's ultimately the fierce artistic vision one remembers most vividly. If you haven't seen a Ferrara movie and you like your first impressions strong, here's a double scotch neat for ya.

  8. Andrew Infante's rating of the film The Blackout

    Memories fade in the coldest winter

  9. João Eça's rating of the film The Blackout

    Possessing that incredible raw energy that only Ferrara has nowadays, this film stays with you and haunts you long after you've finished watching it. It's a movie about a man's past catching up with him (one of Ferrara's favourite themes) and its approach on the study of Image and Reflection is a powerful insight on the role of cinema itself. It's a flawed film, but masterful as a whole.

  10. Don't Get Nasty Brother's rating of the film The Blackout

    The movie was excellent until the last 15 minutes, which as in many of other Ferrara films he seems to change gears and end on a different note. The whole piece is a drama-driven story but then it goes to some sort of thriller conclusion that i'm not very fond of. Still a very good movie, better than many seems to really acknowledge.

  11. Joe Bowman's rating of the film The Blackout

    Awful on many levels and misanthropic to its core, there's still something compelling and watchable about The Blackout. To liken its attraction to that of a trainwreck sounds appropriate, but it's a spectacular disaster.
