In Cold Blood Movie Review

Severely overrated and terribly long, In Cold Blood is a celebrated film noir that is now mostly notable because it stars accused murderer Robert Blake as a real murderer. The story concerns two thugs (Blake and Scott Wilson), who rob a Kansas house where great riches are promised, only to find nothing in the safe. So they murder everyone there instead. Soon caught, they're tried and sentenced to death. Richard Brooks creates a wet and moody set piece, but it's slow, schizophrenic, and only occasionally effectual. Based on Truman Capote's celebated novel and actual events.
