June 19, 2016
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.

Refusing to settle for easy exploitation, director Alexandre Moors paints a vivid, bone-chilling picture of the corrupting power of evil.

...a half-baked endeavor that's unable to entirely live up to the promise of its setup and stellar performances.

It may be too much slow-burning style for those looking for true-crime substance only, but a cool patience is what drives Blue Caprice.

Washington plays the character based on John Muhammad with a persuasive swagger. Paternal pride mixed with a quiet madness dances in his eyes as he lectures his young partner on the fine points of disrupting the social order.

Blue Caprice is a fascinating character study and a fictionalized, human look at two people who went on a murderous rampage and killed innocent people for their beliefs.

Despite its stars giving mesmerizing performances, failed to entertain or educate us more about psychopathic serial killers.

December 8, 2013
This is a low-key film with a deliberate pace. It is dark and chilling in its atmosphere with danger lurking all along the way. It depicts two people on the outside looking in with anger and hunger and evil intent.

By no means a pleasant or enjoyable experience. But... it's certainly a rewarding and memorable piece of cinema.

Disturbing drama speculates on D.C. shooters' lives

What's fascinating is the plausibility of the education Lee receives at the hands of John, how this grim sensei inculcates him in the ways of murder, convincing him that "it's not crazy to kill people, they do it every day." J

Spare yet deeply atmospheric, the film is charged with dreadful fatalism.

The tension and slow poisoning of rational thought is riveting to watch, allowing the feature to find its footing as a depiction of significant exploitation viewed through a horrifying true crime lens.

October 8, 2013
The filmmakers unnervingly convey the killers' methodical yet ultimately random cruelty, and they do it without being exploitative.

October 7, 2013
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.
October 4, 2013
The film creates one of the most chillingly becalmed portraits of insanity I've seen.
October 4, 2013
Thanks to his tone poem approach and desire to evoke instead of explain, Moors makes Blue Caprice a sensational study in subtle psychopathology.
