Just got done with Blue Caprice, and I feel like my emotions have just been run through the friggin' Ninja Warrior course. I'm sure some of effectiveness of the film might stem from the fact that I lived within 5 miles of one of the shootings during John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo's reign of terror- being afraid of being killed while pumping gas and being on the constant lookout for white box trucks was a very real, very terrifying couple of weeks that I'll vividly remember for as long as I live- but the filmmaking was really strong regardless. Powerful work from Tequan Richmond and Isaiah Washington, with Washington embodying a very real evil with a frighteningly subdued complexity that will likely, and sadly, get overlooked come award season.
Also, Tim Blake Nelson continues to be one of the most dependable character actors working today. If you need someone to play white trash and make the character feel authentically lived in, Tim Blake Nelson is your dude.
