10 Feb The Script Lab Review: Blue Caprice
“You know it’s not crazy to kill people, they do it everyday,” coldly explains Isaiah Washington’s shocking transformation as one-half of DC sniper John Muhammad in Alexandre Moors excellently directed Blue Caprice. The psychopathic rhetoric doesn’t become as important to the teacher than the student. Listening is a prematurely hardened Lee Malvo, portrayed superbly by General Hospital and Everyone Hates Chris star Tequan Richmond. That moment of dialogue comes after Malvo kills his first victim. This is where the point of Blue Caprice becomes clear. It’s goal is never to thoroughly explain reasoning behind the 2002 Beltway Sniper Attacks but to cinematically profile how one man’s sociopathic ideologies can dangerously influence weaker individuals.
