  1. Daniela Cabrita's rating of the film The Blackout

  2. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film The Blackout

    FUCK! Fuck! End-of-the-world filmmaking depression fuel, proto-Malickian urban inner turmoil, they grab, the pain, that studio in hell, ass, skin, tits, "am I in a vampire movie?", unwanted blowjobs in the balcony, wearing plastic dollar sunglasses, stroking her face in the tv screen while the Devil films her surrogate coming up to you and you grab her and ask "Why did you leave?" and then you find gin in the minib

  3. josé neves's rating of the film The Blackout

    35mm. Ferrara is doing his Pinku with lots of angst and existentialism. Hysterical and recurringly redundant.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film The Blackout

    A peine sorti de la drogue et de l'alcoolisme, l'acteur Matty (Matthew Modine) tente de reprendre pied, grâce à sa nouvelle compagne Susan (Claudia Schiffer). Malheureusement, le passé, avec son cortège de douleurs et de secrets, va finalement peu à peu le rattraper ..... Plutôt fort moyen ! www.cinefiches.com

  5. Kortirion's rating of the film The Blackout

    A virtual masterpiece marred by an easy, moralistic finale.

  9. o_oo's rating of the film The Blackout

    "Before everyone started talking about creativity, the word was OBSESSION."

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

  11. 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.

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

    Memories fade in the coldest winter

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.
