A film based on real events and the concept taken largely from the book "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote. These two guys wiped out an entire family and, even now, we don't have all of the facts, we'll never know how those people suffered at the hands of Perry and Dick before they finally killed them. Capote created a work of art when he wrote "In Cold Blood"; bringing home to the public for the very first time a style of reporting that was simple and clean, he wrote the book as a journalistic report rather than a "story" and that's why this film works, that's the basic element that's been captured here. There's no glorification of the murder it's just brutally cold and fast and there's no wallowing through the lives of the culprits looking for pity, looking for justification. They plan it, they do it, they run away and very nearly get away, plain and simple. I loved this film. The whole atmosphere's cold, dark and brooding and you feel anxious right from the start, something bad's coming and you can't stop it. I would suggest, humbly, that you read the book before you watch the film, you don't have to, but it's a classic and goes further. Good quality, no problem with the picture or sound, definitely worth watching.
