In Cold Blood

Richard Brooks transforms Truman Capote's objective report of the background, commission, and solution of a murder into an uneasy mixture of facile Freudianism and 40s expressionism. The harsh documentary style that the material demands clashes with Brooks's nervous liberalism, and as a result this 1967 film alternately grips and bores—more of the former in the first part, more of the latter in the second. Fine performances from Robert Blake and Scott Wilson as the killers. R, 134 min.
