A drama teacher's taboo relationship with an unstable student strikes a nerve in her jealous classmate, sparking a vengeful chain of events.
I literally never write reviews but after viewing this I felt like I had to say, this is the best film I’ve seen in ages (and I usually watch a new movie every night). I was glued to my screen the entire time. I’m blown away by Quinn Shephard and all she did for this film. This is a movie to buy, don’t even bother renting it because you’ll want to watch it again and again.
A brilliant debut!
BLAME is Quinn Shephard's directorial debut (she also wrote, and stars, and edited, and pretty much everything else). It's an incredible film with great performances, a dark sensibility, and a fine script that doesn't follow conventions. A fascinating movie that deserves multiple viewings.
Great complexity of realtionships and of teenage life
I thought this movie was great. It keeps three threads (themes) of teenage development pumping at once. The ending was very moving in a surprising way. The film never went for cheap shots as far as exposing emotion or the complexity of the emotions we share with other people in relationships. It was that complexity and "grey area" of human interactions (not black or white) that I liked best about this film. I hope Ms. Shepard directs more films so we can see more of that.
This is a masterful film!
This film, from start to finish, shows a mastery in the craft of filmmaking. Whether that be the incredible camera work (cinematographer: Aaron Kovalchik); the mind blowing, complex characters played my Nadia Alexander, Chris Messina, and Quinn Shephard; and at the helm Ms. Quinn Shephard (director, actor, producer, editor, co-producer for the score... literally what can’t she do) all make this film a riveting, unforgettable experience! You will be glued to the screen and be transported into this incredible dark world that Quinn, Her team, and the cast has created in BLAME! Don’t hesitate...... SEE. THIS. FILM.
I was intrigued the ENTIRE movie!!!

I can't remember where exactly I saw the trailer for the movie but it was very thrilling. It caught my attention and it did not disappoint! The ending was a bit of a surprise to me. Love the soundtrack to the movie too!
Clear shade of distinction

The overt subject matter gives way to a rouge wave of nuance. It's a stirring counterbalance of earnest acting and filmmaking insight, with a brief soundtrack worthy of belonging to both.
