Blue Caprice

Alexandre Moors, USA 2013, 93’

In 2002, two men cruised through several dozen states randomly shooting passersby like game. A senseless and random death evokes the greatest horror: a death that could touch anyone, but is the product of a crime incomprehensible to the viewer and victim alike. Two men zoom along in a blue Chevy Caprice, shooting people at random, like angels of death returning the world to order. Or maybe anti-order?  What is their relationship? Why are they on this murderous spree? The director poses these and other questions by constantly flirting with the theme of  crime and gradually  revealing the story and characters. Using scenes that could make for a thriller, Moors instead creates a complex portrait that shows  middle class America with its freeways, suburbs, and gas stations, worthy of a painting by Edward Hopper.
