|02.28.06||Alamo South Lamar|| Alamo played this as a double feature with Capote. I didn't stay for Capote though... just wanted to see this on the big screen. It's such a gorgeous movie... stunning black and white photography by Conrad Hall and host to the famous "the light is crying for him" scene mentioned on the Visions of Light documentary. I think I've pretty much tracked down every movie mentioned in that doc... it's so great. but anyway, this movie... wow. I remember being really impressed with it when I saw it the first time. Quincy Jones' music, Robert Blake and Scott Wilson's performances, it all comes together with this intriguing Kansas murder story. Really good and unbelievably pretty in a theater. It also has one of the better chilling endings ever. Looking up Brooks on IMDb it's no surprise that he also wrote/directed Looking for Mr. Goodbad, another film with a wonderfully shocking and chilling ending that just leaves you waiting, wishing, hoping for soothing safe end credits and soft music. I can't remember if they show up in Goodbar but for In Cold Blood, the lights just went up and when people started talking they whispered because it was so quiet and heavy in there.|
Then I saw Alex Jones in the hallway and life went back to normal.
