Man, I'm so jealous of Blindness. A film like this is really a dream for a cinematographer because its one of those films that really showcases the visual element of cinema, and it seems like you can go super stylized and be fully justified.

Anyone else get to see it yet? Any thoughts? I'm curious if people found it too stylized. There were a few weak parts in the acting here and there, but overall I was really pleased. Loved city of god, but didn't really feel Constant Gardener much, so nice to see something pretty awesome again.

Saw it today as well, and REALLY enjoyed it. It's quite jarring and disturbing at points, and the visual choices made fit the story perfectly. And it did SciFi the right way, by not trying to explain why it happened...unlike Shyamalan's "The Happening", which would have had Hitchcock rolling in his grave due to the exposition.
