Reception

Blind received positive reviews upon its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 100% of 6 film critics have given the film a positive review, with a rating average of 8.6 out of 10.

Scott Foundas of Variety, said in his review that "Ace Norwegian scribe Eskil Vogt makes a sparkling directorial debut with an alternately tragic and playful tale of a blind authoress." Boyd van Hoeij in his review for The Hollywood Reporter called the film "An ambitiously constructed screenplay translates into a film that's easier to admire than to love." William Bibbiani from CraveOnline praised the film by saying that "Blind exists as a nebulous construction, ever shifting but ultimately centered around a lovely and funny love-quadrangle with curious characters and consistent insight. The film's curious blend of the sensual and the cerebral manages to engage even when you begin to lack confidence about whether anything is actually happening at all."
