As a Dane I had very few preconceived notions about the Clutter Family and In Cold Blood. I knew only what pop culture has told me, mainly that Trueman Capote wrote a book about this horrible crime. This documentary looks at the murders, the murderers and the aftermath in a very well thought out way. It is well researched and beautifully shot. For much of the time the focus is on the family and the community and not just the sensationalism and the murders. This grounds the story in the utter tragedy of this crime and not who did it, which I for one appreciate.
