Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders

Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders

In 1959, the murder of a family in Kansas shocks a town to its core. Shortly thereafter, author Truman Capote arrives in the town to write the novel “In Cold Blood”, which eventually spawns the modern True Crime genre. In this extraordinary docu-series, acclaimed filmmakers Joe Berlinger, Alison Berg and Kahane Cooperman painstakingly separate fact from sensationalism and “non-fiction.” Mixing re-enactments, rarely-seen archival footage and interviews with friends and family of both the Clutters and their killers, COLD BLOODED is a gripping attempt to restore humanity to victims of a truly horrific act of violence. Think you know everything about this famous case? Prepare to be surprised.

Great series. An expansion on not only the the murderers and of Capote, but also on the story of who the Clutter family were, and their place in their community. Multiple perspectives are taken into account on the sensationalization of the crimes, and resulting novel and film. Respect is shown to the victims and the family members who survived them.

Wow! I can’t believe something like this could happen to an innocent sleeping family. I also am so torn by Truman Capote. Maybe in the end even he couldn’t live with himself because he used these men and then ended up caring up about them but still it made no difference!

One extraordinary revelation, almost right at the end.

I just watched episode one and cannot wait to view the rest. However, I wanted to write something immediately. I read "In Cold Blood" at least twice and saw the movie probably more than that. I was always slightly frustrated that we learned almost nothing of the Clutters, and I was really pleased to see a focus on the victims. After watching "In Cold Blood" I've associated the actors from the film with the real people. Now I can finally see the real faces and this makes the murders even worse.
