Depressing, and quite hard to watch at points, but very worthy.
2 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Blind Date is a movie I came across, many times every time I have entered the video store. Due to the lack of comments on the IMDb page, I decided to leave it alone. The temptation began to be too much however, and I decided to give it a look after all. It's one of the most original movies I have ever seen, but there isn't really any happy moments to be had, after I finished viewing it, I became pretty depressed. Blind Date is very cheap looking, but the incredible performances of Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson is what really make the movie. The pain and suffering they are obviously going through, is quite heartbreaking. Most of it is set in an old fashioned, fancy type looking bar, I thought it was great, and really set the mood for the movie. The only problem I had with the movie, was the deliberate slow pace. It was never boring, it just seemed to drag on at certain points, and the different blind dates, did get a little old after a while. I did appreciate the effort on the low budget it had, and it was quite a thought provoking film, when all was said and done.

Performances. Stanley Tucci is remarkable. Filming this must have been very hard, and it shows on his face. To be depressed in almost every scene, was quite the feat. His chemistry with Patricia is amazing. Patricia Clarkson is wonderful. Her pain saddened me, and I was really rooting for her and Stanley to pull themselves together.

Bottom line. Blind Date is an interesting film, despite being extremely depressing, is worthy when all is said and done. Make sure your in the mood for this though, because it may tend to ruin your day, if your not.
