    Between a hologram and an android and a writer with White Page Syndrome, we have seen everything, but heard everything, if not a lot of talk for nothing. one thing that I liked is the realization is clear and crisp, hence but 6 points.

    Rachel Shelley, do I need to say more? She is just amazing and makes a brilliant lead. The whole cast were fantastic, I could not fault one performance. I read somewhere that someone did not know how the head piece works, if you watch properly its explained in a clever way in the adverts on the TV. The whole set up of the film truly is great (spoiler) how it mirror images Claire's tragic childhood. If you haven't seen it you really should. 5 stars for me.

    Was not expecting the quality of this film. I got pulled into the world created straight away. All the actors were sensational, the undertones of mental health and self worth are chilling. This film really is a must watch for those of you who like films that are very much based on characters. You could compare this film to the likes of Misery but it's a world away from that.

    I genuinely wasn't expecting much from this movie, and planned to use it as little more than background noise while I did some work of my own... but I very quickly found myself paying far more attention to this than what I was doing! While it's billed as a sci-fi horror film, it's more of a psychological thriller with light sci-fi elements. Aside from the human-like android Rita, a very friendly hologram, and a front door lock that even Fort Knox would be envious of, the more techy elements are very subdued and in the background -- and this works very well for this particular story. The narrative weaves Claire's memories, her writing, her reality, and an array of hallucinatory psychosis all into a film that's quite riveting! It has great synergy with films like "Misery" as Claire struggles to retain her sanity and escape her captor -- who becomes particularly terrifying when she randomly glitches into the persona of Claire's abusive mother (who is also the antagonist in her novel). Overall, "Blank" hits a great balance of thriller, horror, and sci-fi, with a solid focus on the story and the characters. There are a few scenes that seemed a bit slow, but it has some exquisitely done performances, music that supports the visuals and the story instead of overpowering them, some great camera work and transitions, FX that blend well, and some truly fantastic storytelling.
