Audience Reviews for The Blackout

  • Oct 06, 2009
    From the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival.A Complete waste of my time, This is the worst of all the movies I have seen from this Festival. What was this movie about, had to be a low point in everyone?s career. I knew I was in trouble when netflix sent me a 1997 Movie, that had not a scratch one on it. Looked like a movie right out of the case, meaning, no one has watched it, and for good reason. You give this anything more then 2 stars you might want to get a life. Gets 1/2 a star from me. TRASH IT

    A film I am shocked that more Ferrara fans don't love. Sure it's reminiscent of other works by him, but that's one of the things that makes it great. Modine is awesome as the scumbag lead who goes to Hopper for help on piecing together a night that he blacked out. Terrific stuff that deserves a lot more praise than it got.

    A strange film really, bit slow to start with but has a very good ending with a twist.
