Blink | 1994 | R | - 5.7.7

Madeleine Stowe is a violin player who's recently regained her sight and has visions of a murderer's face. Aidan Quinn helps, and romances her, as a smart-mouthed detective.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - There are several sex scenes between Quinn and Stowe, which are not visually explicit but quite audible (with groans and moans). There are two shots of male derrieres, one of which is Quinn's. A woman is shown lying in a bathtub, and she is fully exposed from the waist up. There are also several shots of a topless Stowe.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - There is a graphic scene of eye surgery. A flashback to a young girl's bloody face after being smashed into a mirror. Several gruesome scenes of victims who are raped and murdered, and shown with their wrists slashed. A police officer is killed and he's shown with his bloody head hanging out of a car. And a violent shoot out, with one person shot off-screen.

LANGUAGE 7 - The F-word is used a couple of dozen times along with assorted scatological terms, anatomical and sexual references.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
