Noir thriller directed by Jim Mickle and starring Michael C. Hall and Sam Shepard. Texan small-business owner Richard Dane (Hall) has been hailed as the town hero since he protected his wife (Vinessa Shaw) and child by fatally shooting a would-be burglar inside their home. Residual guilt from the encounter is quickly dissipated by the police who assure Richard that he was acting in self-defence and therefore cannot be held accountable for the murder. However, when the burglar's recently-paroled father, Ben (Shepard), arrives in town and begins making explicit threats towards Richard and his family, Richard is forced to step up once again to protect them from harm...

Apart from that, their approach is largely understated, evidently giving plenty of freedom to the cast in developing their characterisations, and to the crew in applying their utmost. The result is a vibrant, thrilling and compelling movie that is worth revisiting time and again.
Richard Dane, played by Michael C. Hall, is an intriguing watch. Beneath his redneck exterior and under that ungainly haircut, he is an intelligent and compassionate man with complex, but very human, emotions. It is not an easy part to play, but he nails it superbly, applying notable nuances in facial expressions. The fun starts in earnest when Don Johnson arrives as the larger than life and imposing Jim Bob, a scintillating twist in the narrative that is one of the most memorable sequences in the movie. Sam Shepherd is as dependable as he always is and suitably terrifying where needed. It is fascinating how subtly the revival of the stale relationship between Dane and his wife is depicted, beginning with cold and detached indifference to gradually blossoming through the course of the story.Read more ›
Cold In July is handled wonderfully - the aftermath of the shooting, including the emotional effect it has on Hall's character, is treated with a realistic feel, and all of the actors involved imbue their characters with an air of gritty believability that's often absent in a thriller.
It also doesn't offer cheap solutions. The film will steer you towards what appears to be an answer, only to reveal a surprise or another mystery. Don't worry though - we're not in 'Lost' territory; everything gets revealed in an extremely satisfying and well scripted way that flatters the viewer by treating them like a grown up, presenting tough choices and shocks to the rough-edged characters. Filmed extremely well, with good pacing and tension, it's a real mystery thriller for adults.
Fascinating, captivating, and well worth viewing.
