  • If the subject interests you, don’t let my mildly negative review dissuade you from going to see it. I would like to see it again myself, but this time in the version I can share with several of my relatives whose vision is no longer present. show more

  • Notes on Blindness is more than sufficient to prove that sightlessness, however unwelcome, is a richer experience than we may assume. show more
