Consensus: Smart, sobering, and quietly chilling, Blue Caprice uses its horrible true-life story -- and some solid performances -- to underscore the dreadful banality of evil.

Michael Phillips
Chicago Tribune

Coolly controlled and extremely well-acted.

Rene Rodriguez
Miami Herald

This lyrical, frightening film is a portrait of a man consumed by self-hatred who decided to take it out on the world.

Jason Bailey

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.

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

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.

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

The film creates one of the most chillingly becalmed portraits of insanity I've seen.

Ty Burr
Boston Globe

The film's a character piece with a tightening noose of suspense, and while it has its artsy-indie-dawdly moments, it's disturbing in ways that aren't easy to shake.
