The film BLUE CAPRICE by Alexandre Moors plays itself out like a slow motion descent into madness as it recounts the 2002 real life events of the Beltway Snipers that so gripped the nation in terror and panic. Two males, John Allen Muhammad (Isaiah Washington) and 16 year old Antigua immigrant Lee Boyd Malvo (Tequan Richmond) are both severely afflicted by the emotional and physical abandonment of the women in their lives. For Muhammad, he has lost his wife and children in a bitter divorce and custody battle. For Malvo, he is abandoned by his mother in a scene as cold and detached as it is heartbreaking and enigmatic.

It opened on just 1 screen over the weekend (here in NYC), and will expand to others over the next month; although not every city unfortunately, meaning a lot of you likely won't get the opportunity to see this on the big screen, in a theatrical setting (see upcoming playdates at the bottom of this post).

Both films opened over the weekend, both in new York City, both playing in one theater, so box office totals for each weren't exactly earth-shattering; but, their per screen averages were strong.In fact, Andrew Dosunmu's Mother of George, released by Oscilloscope, had the highest per screen average of any film in release over the weekend, at $22,500. In comparison, the number 1 film in terms of gross, Insidious Chapter 2, earned a per screen average of $13,463.And Blue Caprice, released by Sundance Selects, wasn't that far behind, in the top 5 per screen averages, with $15,200.By the way, after 2 weeks, Winnie Mandela, the Jennifer Hudson biopic on the life of Winnie Mandela, has grossed over $80,000 at the box office.For those in other cities (other than New York), here are the upcoming theatrical play-dates for both Mother of George and Blue Caprice:For Mother of George:09/13/13New York, NYAngelika Film Center09/20/13Atlanta, GALandmark Midtown Art Cinema09/20/13Los Angeles, CALaemmle Royal09/20/13New York, NYAMC Empire 2509/27/13Chicago, ILSiskel Film Center09/27/13Nashville, TNBelcourt09/27/13Seattle, WALandmark - TBD10/04/13Boston, MALandmark Kendall Square Cinema10/04/13Portland, ORLiving Room Theater10/18/13Washington, DCLandmark E-Street Cinema11/08/13Denver, COLandmark - TBD11/22/13Philadelphia, PALandmark Ritz at the BourseFor Blue Caprice:9/20 Roxie Theater San Francisco CA

"How do you infuse empathy and humanity into such a horrific, monstrous, internationally detailed event? Are you guys crazy to actually think you can pull that off and get away with it? That's what attracted me to him, he was crazy enough to dare to try to pull that off. I was like, 'Yeah I've been here before with Get on the Bus, I've been here before with Clockers, I've been here with True Crime, I've been here with some subject matter and themes that were very difficult to wrap around. So I said, 'Let's go there again. Let's dig deep.'"

So you’ve read Tambay's opinion about the film (HERE) which opens this Friday in New York (and I admit that I agree with him except that I found the film very slow-moving as well), but don’t let that stop you from seeing it.
