  2. smndvdcl's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Truman Capote's audacity to develop a non-fiction state-of-the-nation crime novel was ground-breaking in the 1960s, even if conjecture remained regarding the reliability of some deductions. Complete objectivity is almost impossible, even within non-fiction. This accompanying adaptation transcends its 40s noir influence with the potency of caustic realism. Indispensable alongside Seymour Hoffman's role as 'Capote'.

  6. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film In Cold Blood

  7. Crina Cătălina's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    (3.5) The ending reminded me of Victor Hugo's "Le dernier jour d’un condamné", a haunting portrayal of the crippling wait preceding the resolution and the debilitating eagerness to live a life that's running through your fingers as seconds go by.

  8. Dennis Morgan's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Time cannot diminish its power. superbly directed with a moral message that is not preachy.

  11. DrFirestone's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Outstanding cinematography, especially the use of light and shadows, it looks so beautiful in black & white. Great performances from the two main characters. The film offers some tense and powerful moments...

  13. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    An excellent accompaniment piece to Anatomy of a Murder. Both deal with American crime and justice with a objective factual eye, but In Cold Blood elevates itself to becoming a meditation on an entire nation. With some beautiful high contrast shots America becomes a strangely dystopian world, inhabited by two crooks indebted and plagued by their motherland. A fascinating character and country study.

  14. Ashleyp's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Not engaged by this films first quarter but slowly drawn in and by the final third found it compelling. The title is of course ambiguous referring to murders committed by the individuals and the state which the film doesn't really tackle. Great performances though and direction. 3.5.

  15. Kaonashiii's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    "Welcome back to Kansas, baby!" Stunningly shot, great soundtrack; chillingly compulsive viewing.

  16. Superfrog's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    The image is stunning and the simplification of tones fits perfectly with the ethical issues at hand. Very good delivery, stunning moments on a contract that is a bit too literal to make the film truly memorable.

  17. Carmine Loru's rating of the film In Cold Blood

  18. super-kick's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Gripping, tense, violent and shocking. Brilliant!

  19. Steve G.'s rating of the film In Cold Blood

    One of those films that's so good at everything that it's almost unfair to all the other films.

  20. Ark V's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Fine shooting in this Capote adaptation hides a diminishing discourse, the exhibition of causeless leadership and a miserable reckless portrait of those that are easily lead.

  21. Richard Capener's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    As Mubi says: Blake's performance, the cinematography... A big shout out has to go to the editing too, which is great. I found some of the music portentous and the family a bit saccharine, but the ambiguity of the killers' relationship with each other saved the film from being trite and moralistic. This is too obvious, but it would make a lovely double bill with Capote.

  22. Thomas's rating of the film In Cold Blood

    Superbly crafted and balanced film, an arresting, atmospheric, often brutal pursuit across American locales. The cinematography is stunning, with the high-contrast resolution and lighting making every frame as deeply captivating as a document of 60's Americana in its own right. Add to that Quincy Jones' evocative, timeless score and you have an impeccably shot, arresting and haunting piece of cinema.

  23. DanB3000's rating of the film In Cold Blood
