In Cold Blood (1967)

 Rated R for a few spots of swearage.

A dynamite 50-year-old true-crime thriller is the subject of Next 100 Project podcast #72. Robert Blake & Scott Wilson are a remarkable team of killer idiots. Full marks to Richard Brooks for adapting (and also directing) Truman Capote’s landmark book. Just a must-see movie…and a must-hear podcast. Sparkplug Coffee awaits, so go get some!

FOR THE RECORD: Jeff Daniels played Alvin Dewey in Infamous and Chris Cooper played him in Capote.
