"Dode Hoek" Blind Spot) is probably the first movie released in the two parts of Belgium, and also produced in both parts of the country. Peter Van De Begin plays a corrupt police commissioner extremely well. His emotions go from extreme sarcasm to anger, mistrust and grief. Living legend Jan Decleir gives another very good performance while newcomer Soufiane Chilah gives a breakthrough showcase of his acting. The movie itself focuses a lot on racism and extremism on both sides of the law, while being extremely relevant to Belgium after the terrorist attacks in Brussels on march 22 2016. The pacing is a bit weird in the beginning but after a shocking reveal in the middle non-stop suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat till the credits start, and the ending will leave you question certain politic choices made on behalf of our freedom, while ignoring the blind spots.
