In Cold Blood (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on September 12, 2010

I’m surprised this movie doesn’t have a better reputation, but it just doesn’t get mentioned that often.  Although occasionally it gets bogged down in the killers’ motivation, it never strays too far into Freudian mumbo jumbo, and for the most part is a compelling look at both the psychological and the physical aspects of the crime.  Brilliant cinematography by Conrad Hall, terrific score by Quincy Jones, and solid performances from the leads (I really need to check out more John Forsythe).  Looks stunning in high-definition, too.  Rating: 9
