Daniel's Review of In Cold Blood
In Cold Blood(1967)
The greatest thing that Richard Brooks, In Cold Blood, holds for itself, is the stunning black and white shots. The cinematography by Conrad L Hall, who's done a lot of great things like American Beauty and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, does another superb job with this work. The picture quality was crisp, and the fade outs just blended so perfectly. This film is deep into the realism sphere. While the movie isn't wholesome, the family scenes were, and reminded me of The Young Savages. The music wasn't fitting, and this movie could've been shorter, but it was a classy film.
