About the Movie

In Cold Blood is the powerful, true story of a callous murder, based upon the best-selling novel byTruman Capote. A prosperous and respected Kansas farmer, his wife and his two teenage children are wantonly and brutally slaughtered. The murderers are two mindless ex-convict drifters: Perry Smith (Robert Blake) and Dick Hickock (Scott Wilson). Neither of the men are sane enough to regret their crime. The story penetrates the inner workings of the criminals minds as it follows their purposeless meandering through Mexico and the United States in evasion of the law. After more than a year of wandering, the hunted men are finally caught, tried and in a dramatic conclusion condemned to hang.

Fresh: A probing, sensitive, tasteful, balanced and suspenseful documentary-drama. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Hall's bleak vision, his gift for working with darkness and rain, rivals classic film noir of the 1940s and '50s in its visual mastery. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Fresh: Brooks' great achievement in the film is to portray Smith and Hickock as the unexceptional, dim-witted, morally adrift losers they were. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Oct 18, 2008

Don't bother...

See Capote, this movie is a yawn. Does not carry the feel of the book of the same name.

Do Bother

This movie is amazing, Richard Brooks is one of the greatest screenwriters and directors. I saw a restored 70mm print in LA on a big screen. It was the first time the print had been shown. Not one scratch, that's how I recommend one should see this film. The black and white work in this film is astonishing, especially the sequences in the cell.

Classic Film

This is a CLASSIC piece of cinema and is still taught as an example in film schools everywhere. If you are at all interested in catching up on old movies, this is one to get
