"Look at me boy! Take a good look! Cause I'm the last living thing you're ever gonna see!"

Truman Capote painstakingly wrote a non-fiction novel of the true story surrounding the brutal slaughter of a Kansas family in their home. This novel was a literature masterpiece that is still widely acclaimed to this day. The novel was titled In Cold Blood and was the source material for this... read more

CRITERION FILMS (781 movies items)

"Truman Capote’s best seller, a breakthrough narrative account of real-life crime and punishment, became an equally chilling film in the hands of writer-director Richard Brooks. Cast for their unsettling resemblances to the killers they play, Robert Blake and Scott Wilson give authentic, unshowy performances as Perry Smith and Richard Hickock, who in 1959 murdered a family of four in Kansas during a botched robbery. Brooks brings a detached, documentary-like starkness to this uncompromising vie"

"First viewing - March 18th In Cold Blood has also been on my radar for a long time now, initially thanks to a strong recommendation from my mom and supported by my reading the book which is phenomenal. The film adaptation does a really good job of bringing the book to life, thanks in large part to the stellar cast who shines throughout the dark story they dwell in. Between this and Capote you can get a fairly well-rounded portrayal of the entire story, and I found it interesting that Capote is "

When 1 Scene is More Than Enough. (13 movies items)

"The Hanging Scene And I literally mean the last 8 seconds of the movie. "In Cold Blood" is a great, great movie, and it has one of the simplest, best endings ever. No matter how much I liked the all film, when I think about it, the first thing coming in my mind is Perry's corpse hanging, bouncing 3 times, the 1st time being filmed from the side, the 2nd time in a frontal shot, the 3rd time, still on that frontal shot, but on the fade-out. No-music or anything...that was a brave, strong, cold, "

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E6 - June 2012 (39 movies items)

" Nice to see that Colombia Pictures is capable of restoring some of their classic films. So, this was a visual delight. The film still holds up extremely well. However, if your expecting an early version of "Natural Born Killers" your going to be disappointed. Less action and more artistic unfolding of a senseless crime."

“Truman Capote's chilling account of a true story wherein two drifters murder a family has been dramatized many times. But this 1967 version still remains the best to date. I will admit that this film was more powerful than any other thrillers I have ever seen. This film comes with the level of Hitchcock classics and Silence of the Lambs. It's not just chilling, but also incredibly realistic. Conard Hall's Black and White Cinematography gave a stunning look to the film. Brooks direction and a smart screenplay takes us directly inside the minds of the criminals who pulled the trigger. The fact is that we see the whole film through their eyes and although it seem weird that only these two killers are given the emotional weight, but that's not what it looks like. Brooks takes us to the dark si” read more
