Not a predictable movie - worth a watch
This movie doesn't fit neatly into a category. Parts of it seem like a middle age rom com with the music and wooing. Then part of it seems more dramatic.

Demi Moore plays a wife of a finance guy who gets in trouble with the law. She has to do some community service and reads to a blind writer/teacher played by Alec Baldwin.

The main fault is Alec Baldwin although he tries to act charming is a too overweight and unattractive to be the romantic lead. Demi Moore is still striking if a little scary looking. But not in a horror story way. Dylan McDermott is good as the menacing hedge fund husband who gets in trouble.

Worth a watch

How very romantic. Enjoyable but forgettable.
Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore are a good pairing because they are two very attractive people, Though Dylan McDermott is no slouch in the looks department either.

Baldwin plays a blind writer, (The stereotypical writer that's brilliant cause he wrote two great books but only published one, and he's half a bottle away from being a mean drunk). He had an encounter with Demi Moore who plays the wife of a business man who used her name to commit white collar crimes and now she's force to do community service to pay for those crimes (She too is a stereotype of being rich and white and use to getting whatever she wants but now she gets a little taste of life without the silver spoon).

McDermott's character is not as stereotyped, playing one of these wall street guys who was from the streets, but his story arch as the husband (Of Demi Moore's character) is very cliché (He treats her like she's property, and is very possessive). Though, I'm not sure if the amount of screen time McDermott got in the film was truly needed for the story, he was the most interesting character in the movie and it made the movie more interesting.

So they definitely needed him. The movie is not bad. It works best the more you like watching Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore (Who I rarely see in films today so it was a pleasure), but it's not a film that I would brag about. You watch it once, you'll like it and from there it's pretty forgettable.

It'll entertaining you for a few hours but leave no long lasting impression.

The Little Town Called Eze
Not far from Monte Carlo on the Côte d'Azur of Southern France lies the picturesque town of Eze. The name of Eze was one of the small details that were rolled into the combination romance and thriller called "Blind." The action of the film is triangulated around the strange relationship of a blind author and teacher of creative writing; a cruel, ruthless, and crooked entrepreneur; and the businessman's wife, who was at one point drawn into the shallow yet adrenaline-pumping lifestyle of her husband. But her world changes when she is introduced to the creative writer who has compensated for his blindness by being attentive to other senses and to the intuitive side of his fellow human beings.

At one point in the film, the blind author Bill Oakland (Alec Baldwin) recognizes the scent of the perfume of Suzanne Dutchman (Demi Moore) as Muguet Des Bois, and her reaction is significant. This is an unusual moment when someone has complimented her on one of her personal choices. The moment is especially poignant to Suzanne when she discovers that her husband Mark (Dylan McDermott) has been unfaithful to her and has given the lover the gift of Chanel No. 5. Mark probably never even knew what was Suzanne's favorite perfume.

Baldwin, Moore, and McDermott are all excellent in their respective roles. The film is especially strong in the details, such as the title of Bill's next book ("Nothing Left to Win or Lose") that sums up the position that he has adopted in life after he lost his eyesight in the auto accident that took the life of his wife.

One weakness of the film was in its dialogue that was clearly a stretch for the actors to perform with credibility or even a straight face. When the jealous Mark complains to Suzanne about her relationship with Bill, he waxes poetic in suggesting that "Bill is a short story; I'm your novel." Woof! Lines like that one did not sound like they were coming from the boy from Far Rockaway who pulled himself by his bootstraps to become "Mr. Dutchman."

The film was on much firmer footing with the broader strokes of character transformation, especially in the change that occurs for Suzanne. In her budding relationships with the blind author, it appears for the first time in her life that she has made contact with a person who recognizes her inner, fragile qualities and ultimately treats her as an equal, as opposed to an object. In the process, she came to radiate the special rays of sunlight that falls on the idyllic community of Eze.

The bloom is off the rose for Baldwin as a serious dramatic actor
After 19 years of marriage, the high-living wife of a wealthy businessman is shocked to find out her husband has been arrested for insider trading (she's also surprised much later to learn he's been cheating on her). Sentenced for her complicity (which she appears to be innocent of), she must complete 100 hours of community service, filling that time by reading to the blind. Her audience is an antagonistic writer-turned-teacher who lost his sight and his wife in a car crash; he infuriates her immediately by calling her on her own self-deception, but eventually they form a romantic bond. Tepid drama from director Michael Mailer, who is unable to get a sincere performance from Alec Baldwin as the professor; at this point, Baldwin is so ubiquitous on television as a self-absorbed smart-ass and raconteur that disappearing into a character who has experienced tragedy is alien to him. It doesn't help that the script, by John Buffalo Mailer from Diane Fisher's story, fails to separate Baldwin's character from the actor's real-life persona, and when he gives Demi Moore a dressing down on their first meeting, he acts like he's doing a parody of Hannibal Lecter. As for Moore, she has lost her instincts as an actress (and her sense of humor); when she gets angry, it isn't angry enough--her face is a mask, and barely recognizable from the red-hot talent she once was. The film is full of tired give-and-take, also a facetious class conversation about gay sex in literature (followed by Baldwin bellowing, "Cut the sh*t!"), and Dylan McDermott taking down underlings and prisoners alike. It feels about as real as cartoon. *1/2 from ****

Moore is a revelation
I have never been a fan of Demi Moore - I didn't get her appeal and was never impressed with her acting, but interestingly she was the thing I liked best about this movie. She is quite lovely, and her voice has lost that husky quality that I used to find so grating. Her acting was natural and subtle yet effective. Unfortunately, I don't have similar positive things to say about this movie. Baldwin is his typical blow-hard self, and his transformation from a frustrated, angry, and damaged tortured writer is not believable. He is also not believable as a romantic lead. Maybe he has done one too many Trump impressions, because his appeal at this point is just - "yuck".

The plot is schlocky and predictable, and the addition of the young man who initially volunteered to assist Baldwin's character only later to become his house boy/protégé was weak.

Over all a pretty bad B movie with A movie pretensions. The writing was weak and the plot was often silly and superficial.

a pleasant surprise.
no one has reviewed this film as of 15July17. I'm very surprised at that considering the cast is comprised of 3 well known actors as the leads. first let me say that Demi Moore is looking very very ODD these days. you will notice the extreme plastic surgery when the camera 1st encounters her. if you can get past that initial shock she does give a good performance as the scorned woman. Mr Baldwin was a surprise as his character starts off as a dickhead and later becomes charming when he wants sum tail from Miss Moore. there is a fairy tale ending which only happens in films. overall i found the film entertaining and a good way to pass the time.

Intelligent Film with Excellent Characters
Do you judge a movie by the number of car chases and explosions? If so, then BLIND is not for you. BLIND is an intelligent film with a consistent pace that allows for strong character development. Alex, Demi & Dylan are perfectly cast and all deliver strong performances. There's a twist that caught me off guard, and the ending is incredibly satisfying. BLIND is a winner!

Great Feel Good Movie... Great Cinematography
I am not one for watching a bunch or "Romantic" Movies, however because of the strong lead actors, i gave this movie a shot.

If you are someone who enjoys great cinematography, as well as an intelligent film made for a more mature audience, you will enjoy this movie. This film is filled with perfect lighting and camera angles throughout the entirety of the movie, which greatly help the viewers grasp the emotions of the story.

Blind is very good at keeping the viewer interested through the duration of the film.. My only gripe with this movie is that it is predictable in the sense that most Romantic movies end the same, however in this case they pulled it off very well.

good story nice film
the music at the end of film during the credits is excellent all in French and it says Robert Redford play an instrument, great, Miss Moore looked great, use t0o see her often in Hailey. in the film several great lines are used as the main actor is a writer, and he improves after his reader Miss Moore begins to read several books to the writer. one of his students plays a great part.

VIEWS ON FILM review of Blind
2017's Blind is my latest review. Its opening scenes are intriguing. Then, Blind descends into yet another film in which the screenwriters become vague. Yes I'm talking about the details on how criminal characters are arrested, processed, and put through the almighty penal system. So OK, let's get all the puns out of the way shall we. There's basically no harm in "seeing" Blind. Natch.

Now in Blind, Robert Redford sings a song during the closing credits. That's right, Robert Redford. He's not one of Blind's producers, he doesn't star in Blind, and he's not behind the camera in any capacity. I mean how random is that?

Anyway, the story of Blind is as follows: Suzanne Dutchman (Demi Moore) and Mark Dutchman (Dylan McDermott) are a rich, married couple living in New York City. Mark, who's a crooked businessman, gets detained by police and thrown in jail. As Mark awaits trial, Suzanne also gets charged with knowing about her husband's illegal dealings. She's sentenced to community service and has to take care of a blind novelist named Bill Oakland (played by Alec Baldwin). Bill and Suzanne eventually have an affair all to the dismay of an angered Mark.

Blind, which proclaims that Brooklyn is the new Paris, is set to a backdrop similar to what Peter Glantz did when he directed 2014's The Longest Week. In truth, some of Blind is tedious and some of it is professing. Ultimately, this askew dramatization gets mixed results from me.

The acting from the leads nevertheless, is pretty decent. Everything else around them, not so much. Baldwin and Moore have okay chemistry but McDermott is truly the standout. As a dude who cheats on his wife and cheats on the American public, no one does ruthless, cold, and cunning quite like Dylan McDermott. As for Baldwin, well he paints an admirable portrait channeling a persona who can't see five feet in front of him. However, he's no Al Pacino (see next paragraph). Alec Baldwin's way of playing a blind chap is to pick a spot on the wall and basically stare at it. Valiant try there Alec.

In conclusion, Blind at ninety-eight minutes, is caught somewhere between a hard drama, a direct-to-video trash exploit, and a catatonic love story. Directed by Michael Mailer with a screenplay by John Buffalo Mailer (Michael's younger brother), Blind is for the most part, kind of watchable. Still, Mailer's film is sort of uneven as it shifts its cinematic tones literally on a dime. Imagine watching something that comes off like Scent of a Woman meets Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Then, add a TV movie feel to it. That's what you get with Blind. After watching it, I realized that Blind is a flick that doesn't really know what it wants to be. "Eyesight" isn't exactly 20/20. My rating: 2 and a half stars.
