From Back Cover:

Wickedly funny, multi-layered and intensely original, this is the widely-acclaimed and award-winning story of a blind man who's deeply rooted mistrust of humanity prompts him to compulsively take photographs that document his world. The only problem is, he's got to get somebody to describe his pictures to him. And when there's no one you can trust, it's hard to find someone on whom you can rely.
Martin is a man who is gripped by his past, indifferent to his present and unable to envision the future. He and the two people closest to him do a quirky waltz of shifting loyalties, sexual relations, mounting hopes and dashed expectations in this unique, provocative and witty work.
The cover to this movie claims that it is a comedy, but there's absolutely nothing funny about it. It watches more like a drama than a comedy, albeit not a particularly good drama, despite the rave reviews on the back cover.
Rated R (MPAA)
