Blue Caprice lays out the details of a terrible time for Americans.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 19, 2013
Despite the solid performances from Washington and Richmond, we get a little bored and begin waiting to see what will happen (or, more precisely, how the filmmakers will handle the ending) ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 26, 2013
The movie never gets beyond the most iconic image that gives it a name; never digging deep enough into these characters to register as something human instead of a filmmaking experiment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5.0
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.
December 10, 2013
Despite its stars giving mesmerizing performances, failed to entertain or educate us more about psychopathic serial killers.

September 26, 2013
Although the actors are fine, writer-director Alexandre Moors's feature debut suffers from a lulling tonal sameness.
September 13, 2013
The end product is a psychological thriller that's light on thrills and psychology.

September 12, 2013
I understand Moors' impulse to avoid both tidy moral explanations and sensationalistic gore, but we don't spend long enough with either victims or perpetrators to get a sense of what those terrible few weeks in Washington were like.
September 11, 2013
It's not an easy sit.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 10, 2013
This hybrid of a character study and a true-crime account is well-acted and suitably tense, but lacks a deeper resonance.
September 13, 2013
The movie substitutes milky, washed-out color and funereal music for insight.
September 26, 2013
"Blue Caprice" doesn't offer the sense of catharsis or closure, let alone new information, that makes it more than a cold, if disciplined, directorial exercise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 26, 2013
If Moors and Porto were aiming for gun-debate relevance, they've failed; "Blue Caprice" has nothing to say about a society plagued by violence, nor does it focus on mental illness as a probable cause.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 12, 2013
A good example of responsible, well-intentioned true-crime filmmaking.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.8/10
September 12, 2013
While Blue Caprice is basically a character study, the fury of the killing spree is captured in quick and vivid brutality.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 4, 2013
The most frightening monster movie of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 10, 2013
The film attempts to reconstruct the Beltway sniper terror from the inside out. This is what the terror really was: This is how it can happen, anywhere. And that's what's most terrifying of all.

September 29, 2013
In presenting no easy answers or a clear motive for the actions of our two doomed leads, Blue Caprice paints a portrait of disillusionment gone awry and a bond steeped in impending tragedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
March 16, 2013
The filmmakers are more interested in questioning what brings people to commit senseless and merciless acts than they are preoccupied with the historical record.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 12, 2013
It's rather impressive that this is Alexandre Moors' first feature film and Ronnie Porto's first screenplay. Their portrait of these killers could very well get under your skin.
