A Non-Scottish Drug Film!!!
23 February 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Dark, Brooding, Solid. Not every film must be part of a new wave.

The urban drug epidemic is the setting but the real story is about familial love and its sacrifices. At times the film is a struggle to watch, its realism grinds on the viewer just as this grey life must grind on the burdened sister, Lupa(Dorrer). The programme notes for the film told me that this would be "a terrifying drama about young people trying to find a way of out their destructive lifestyles" and this film could definitely appeal to a personal development teacher wanting to keep their class busy on a rainy Thursday afternoon. It's a simple story told with solid directing, risky camera-work and good acting (and in the case of Dorrer, excellent acting).

The previous reviewer pointed out in common film cultures this project would not have been given the green light but I have seen hundreds of hours of humdrum drug drama on American, British, French, German and Italian screens. I suppose that's my fault for watching everything and not just film's that I am told to go and see.

No expert on the Slovenian film industry I guess it is not so big and I expect that they probably a)need to get this stuff out of their system and b)don't have a lot of public or private money to be very risky. No doubt Blind Spot picking up a number of awards around Europe will prick up the ears of some bright people at the Slovenian Cultural Ministry and help open up the coffers.

As for nicking off Frankenheimer's FRENCH CONNECTION 2, well I just watched Are We There Yet? and I just hope filmmakers in 25 years time are still nicking off Frankenheimer's FRENCH CONNECTION 2.

So my advice is to watch Blind Spot.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SLOVENIAN FILM INDUSTRY, IT'S THE ONLY ONE WE'VE GOT!!!
