Blue Caprice (2013)

Blue Caprice (2013) - Movie Review
Directed by: Alexandre Moors
Country: USA

Movie Review: Life is not pleasant in Alexandre Moors’ fantastic directorial debut, “Blue Caprice”, which was based on the true events occurred in October 2002, when two men started to shoot random people during three weeks, in three different states. The case got known by the name of Beltway sniper attacks and the title of the film makes reference to the blue 1990 Chevrolet Caprice used in the murders. The story takes us to Antigua Caribbean, and we can follow the killer’s path and the motives that led him to commit those abominable crimes. Lee (Tequan Richmond), a 17-year-old boy who is despised by his mother, decides to kill himself by drowning in the sea, but in the last minute he was saved by John (Isaiah Washington), an American who was taking a special vacation with his kidnapped children, after lose their custody. John takes Lee with him to US, playing the role of adoptive father and brainwashing him until he becomes in a relentless killing machine ready to enter in action at any time. This balanced and meticulous tale of cruelty and anguish about two dangerous outcasts who decided to take revenge on society, was carried out in an unhurried pace and directed with sufficient intelligence to avoid conventional guidelines. The veracity conveyed by the performances was never in cause, making of “Blue Caprice” an enthralling crime/drama with a lot to think and discuss especially in the psychological field.
