Boyd van Hoeij – Cineuropa(Europe)

« ...Wagner has taken something of his documentary background with him, giving Blind Spot a harshly realistic edge, especially in the squalid backdrop against which the police intrigue develops... What’s impressive is the way the film takes several carefully planned back-stories and slowly unveils little snippets of them even as they are braided together into one convincing tapestry... Of great help in grounding the story in both a realistic setting as well as in a specific crossbreed of the thriller and noir genres is the oft-penumbral camerawork of Jako Raybaut; the foreboding orchestral score of André Mergenthaler and the superlative production design of Françoise Joset, with its seamy night-time and often rain-swept locations. »
