REVIEWS:





"This excellent quasidocumentary...sends shivers down
the spine. .... Robert Blake and Scott Wilson, in the principal
roles, demonstrate the tensions, the torments, and shabby conceits
of the miserable criminals, [giving] disturbing dimension to their
roles. .... [During the] graphic reconstruction of what happened
in the house that awful night...[Director Richard] Brooks exercises
his most admirable skill and good taste. For without once actually
showing the raw performance and effects of violence, the shooting
and the knifing, he builds up a horrifying sense of the slow terror
and maniacal momentum of that murderous escapade. .... Best of all,
he makes us understand, on the basis of what he has shown us about
these hoodlums earlier in the film, why their wild, smashing outburst
of vengeance is inevitable. .... The final scene of the hanging, which
is realistically done, is like some medieval rite of retribution. It
leaves one helplessly, hopelessly chilled."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 15, 1967







"To the degree that 'In Cold Blood' is an accurate, sensitive
record of actual events, it succeeds overpoweringly. The actors,
Robert Blake and Scott Wilson, are so good they pass beyond
performances and almost into life. .... At times one feels this is
not a movie but a documentary that the events are taking place now."

-- Roger Ebert; February 6, 1968
