Emma is an attractive girl in her 20s who has been blind for 20 years. A new type of eye operation partially restores her sight, but she is having problems: sometimes she doesn't "remember" what she's seen until later. One night she is awakened by a commotion upstairs. Peering out of her door, she sees a shadowy figure descending the stairs. Convinced that her neighbour has been murdered she approaches the police, only to find that she is unsure if it was just her new eyes playing tricks on her.Written by

The condition that Madeleine Stowe's character suffers from the film does actually exist. It's called retroactive hallucination. See more »
Emma grabs a gun from the police car and fires off shots at her attacker. It is extremely unlikely that she has ever handled a gun before due to her blindness. Yet she handles the gun expertly, even managing to know that there is a safety catch and how to deactivate it. See more »

A good, absorbing thriller with an unusual idea at its core, "Blink" also enjoys the benefits of good acting and direction, and some truly heartstopping scenes. What struck me also was its success in making the audience share the "Emma Brody's" confusion when faced with the the sights of the city around her for the first time in years. The very last scene is, perhaps, a bit pat, but we've had our fun by then and can indulge the filmmakers here. Recommended.
