Brilliantly Unsettling Performances
J. Harbaugh | Iowa | 07/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a counselor, I was looking for a film to share with a client in the hope that it would help him develop some insight. I was basically familiar with LaPaglia's work in "Without A Trace," where the character is a nurturing, grumpy, teddy bear sort of person, so I did wonder how he might translate into an abuser. Yikes. This is the most realistic study I've seen of the thinking and actions of an abusive person, the rationalization. His performance is powerful, extremely unsettling. Family court judges ought to require this film for every domestic abuse case they see, so people can see themselves. It might effect some change in them. Mary Stuart Masterson's character is fascinating also, true to life, brings out the impossible situation she's in when deciding what to do. A film that grabs your emotions and leaves you with the feeling of having experienced the abuse, too. Gives an understanding of the total situation in abusive realtionships."

Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 01/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Frannie and her son have finally escaped a respected police detective who is also a wife-beater: but a life on the run, hiding from friends and family as well as the vengeful husband searching for them, takes it toll on both Frannie and the son who can't quite understand why they left. A new community, new friends, and new job doesn't quite erase the past, and when Robert lets his guard down, trouble results. Can Frannie ever find life free from her husband? Black & Blue is a gripping, technically flawless, suspense-filled thriller from start to finish; one DVD viewers will find worth repeat watching, and a powerful addition to the MPI Media Group's 'True Stories Collection'.
