  • Fantastically powerful despite its flaws. (Review of Original Release) show more

  • Excellent quasidocumentary, which sends shivers down the spine. (Review of Original Release) show more

  • The most memorable section of the film is the chilling quarter-hour devoted to the apprehension and eventual murder of the Clutter family. Captured in unblinking, neo-documentary detail, it freezes the blood just as they did all those decades ago. show more
