Blue Caprice

“Perhaps the best debut feature film to come out of Sundance 2013, Blue Caprice is a fascinating and haunting portrait that will leave you conflicted regarding the meaning behind a meaningless crime.”—Film Stage. Blue Caprice is not a documentary, but it is based on the Beltway sniper attacks during which two men, John Muhammed and Lee Malvo, conducted a siege of terror on the Washington, D.C., area. Their method: a series of random shootings in public places. Their weapon: a sniper rifle, fired from the trunk of a blue Chevrolet Caprice. “The film investigates the genesis of those horrific events from the point of view of the two shooters, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances, lyrical camerawork, and a fractured structure, Blue Caprice’s director Alexandre Moors utilizes a formidable cinematic lexicon to concoct a harrowing psychological exploration of the two cold-blooded killers that will make a forceful impact on audiences that remains long after the lights come up.”—Sundance Film Festival. R. 93 Min.
