Blue Caprice (★★★★ Empire US iPad Review)

BlueCapriceSquareIt’s little more than a decade since the infamous Beltway sniper attacks, in which two African-American gunmen targeted random citizens of Washington, D.C., and for many the wounds still feel fresh. So kudos to first-timers R.F.I. Porto (screenwriter) and Alexandre Moors (director), who delve into the background of the shootings with a sensitivity that recalls, and arguably channels, Peter Bogdanovich’s Targets and Gus Van Sant’s Elephant. Isaiah Washington (remember Clockers?) gives one of the year’s best performances as the unhinged father who leads his adopted son to America, and then into his psychotically twisted world – with tragic, terrifying consequences. Chilling. ★★★★
