Fellow Film Club Members & Movie Buffs:

Picture 23

BLUE CAPRICE has been open at the Grand Cinema for 3 days now, and it is suffering from poor box office it seems. I saw it today with one other person in the theater. We all know what this means–it will only last until Thursday this week, or be reduced to one performance per day next week. But with the Tacoma Film Festival in full swing, it seems doubtful it will stay on. So please make some time over the next few days & go to see it. It is the perfect catalyst for our two DVD picks, BONNIE & CLYDE, and BADLANDS.

The striking feature film debut of writer-director Alexandre Moors, BLUE CAPRICE is a harrowing yet restrained psychological thriller about an abandoned boy lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure. Inspired by true events, BLUE CAPRICE investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two killers, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, BLUE CAPRICE documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. BLUE CAPRICE paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that will endure long after the lights come up.Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond In 'Blue Caprice' 2013

“The filmmakers have made a smart, sobering movie that speculates with compelling detachment on how the abhorrent urge to take innocent lives might evolve.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“Blue Caprice is a chillingly plausible and responsibly handled attempt to dramatize the disturbing bond between the two men behind the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks.” – Justin Chang, Variety
