Critic Reviews

  • The only matter that interests is the question of Fiennes's presence in this political lesson for children. More...
  • About as subtle as its all too obvious title would suggest. More...
  • An indelible portrait of the contradictions of power. More...
  • Writer-director Robert Edwards frantically throws in references to Orwell (Animal Farm and 1984), Lady Macbeth, Yeats, Mao, etc. More...
  • Robert Edward's satirical allegory shamelessly borrows ideas from Orwell's 1984, then tramples them into the dust. More...
  • If satire is the thing that closes on Saturday night, then political satire is usually doomed to close one night earlier. In the case of a pretentious monstrosity called Land of the Blind, it's a miracle it ever opened at all. More...
  • There's nothing particularly revolutionary about writer-director Robert Edwards' grimly satiric political fable. More...
  • Wrongheaded and bizarrely outrageous. More...
  • Political satire is so rare that it's a shame to watch the reliable Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland lend their talents to one that is blind to its own incompetence. More...
  • The movie leaves you with lots of questions, mainly, what are Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland doing here? Imagine Ed Wood attempting Brazil or Uwe Boll remaking V For Vendetta. More...
