Reviews: Blue Caprice (2013)

blue_capriceReviews for this film from our members:

  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: This is a film that stubbornly refuses to sensationalize; it’s not interested in how these men killed, or in exploiting and fetishizing those acts. Instead, it explores their humanity—which is revealed to be even more terrifying.
  • Chris Barsanti @ Film Racket
    • Excerpt: Alexandre Moors’ chilling, confidently minimalist feature debut is a horror film that doesn’t try to shock.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
    • Excerpt: By no means a pleasant or enjoyable experience. But… it’s certainly a rewarding and memorable piece of cinema.
  • Bob Cashill @ Popdose.com
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: The film is quiet, set to classical music, building slowly as a character study and eschewing the usual serial killer genre’s focus on the murders themselves.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Thoughtful performances and grim visual elegance aren’t enough to save this portrait of abuse and control twisted into banal evil from becoming too banal to have much bite.
  • Danny King @ Paste Magazine
    • Excerpt: [For] the most part, a good example of responsible, well-intentioned true-crime filmmaking.
  • Donald Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
  • [New – 3/20/14] | Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
  • Frank Ochieng @ SFcrowsnest
    • Excerpt: ‘Blue Caprice’ does justice to the true-crime genre as it is armed with potent performances, an emotional and psychological punch to the vulnerable heart and the lingering sentiment about what motivates the impulsive urges of unpredictable evil in broken individuals.
  • Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com
    • Excerpt: A haunting work of earned literary license, “Blue Caprice” is a deconstructionist dramatization of the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks that transports the viewer inside the troubled minds of the killers.
