An Solid, Underrated, Thriller.
An Talented Musician (Madeleine Stowe) is having her eyes restored after twenty years of blindness. After the successful operation, she’s becomes a key witness to a murder but her brain is having trouble to make a visual information on the killer. The police thinks, she’s a crackpot but expect for one detective (Aidan Quinn) is trying to help her.
Directed by Michael Apted (Coal’s Miner Daughter, Gorialls in the Mist, Enigma) made an intriguing suspense thriller that is well made, funny, entertaining & thanks to the sharp performances by Stowe and Quinn makes this one more than an enjoyable film. Perphas it’s a bit heavy handed for some tastes, because of Stowe’s character has “retroactive vision” problem. In real life “retroactive vision” isn’t fictional as some believed. There’s something unique to this movie than the usual woman in jeopardy pictures.
DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1) transfer (Also in Pan & Scan) and an good-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD’s only feature is the original theatrical trailer. This film didn’t find much success at the box office, despite being well received by the critics. This certainly play well on Video. This picture has excellent cinematography by Dante Spinotti (The Haunting “1999”, Manhunter, Red Dragon) and this was certainly one of the few (and best) underrated thrillers that came out in the early 1990’s. Super 35. (****/*****).
CHEER! – (8 stars out of 10)
The stage curtains open …
“I can’t see things that are right in front of me, and I can see things that couldn’t possibly be there!”
“Blink”, starring Aidan Quinn and Madeleine Stowe, isn’t one of the best of it’s genre, but it’s a solid thriller with strong performances. This is another one of those films that flew under the radar for me. I saw it on the shelf in the video store (way back in the day), and since I’m a Madeleine Stowe fan, I thought I’d give it a chance. I’m very glad I did.
Emma Brody (Stowe) is a musician who’s been blind for the last 20 years of her life. She’s single, lives alone, except for her dog, and she’s the violin player in a local Irish influenced rock band called The Drovers. However, when she is told she can receive an eye transplant because a donor became available, she gets different eyes and soon she can see again. The only problem is, she experiences delayed reaction in her vision. Something, or somebody she may have seen won’t register until a day later. When her upstairs neighbor is murdered, she doesn’t realize she has seen the killer until later – until it might be too late.
From start to finish, this was a well made movie. Madeleine Stowe had a difficult role to play. As a recovering eye surgery patient, she was amazing in her emotional range. As a recluse learning to trust and love an impulsive cop, she was completely believable. As a woman trying to survive a deadly stalker, she had me on the edge. Aidan Quinn was solid in his role as the cop trying to protect her, and as her love interest.
I highly recommend this film. It moves along at a good pace, and the direction is tight. It is a good blend of thrills, mystery, and and even love. I love the camera work here as well – with enough CG to keep you in the feel of what she is going through with her vision. The use of light and colors was excellent. I own this one, and have watched it more than once. 8 stars out of 10.
