'Cold in July' - 3 stars( Michael O'Sullivan, IFC Films )
R; 1:49 running time
The threatening mood of "Cold in July" puts it in some good company, including the Coen brothers' "Blood Simple" (1984), Michael Winterbottom's "The Killer Inside Me" (2010) and Richard Linklater's "Bernie" (2011). Tense and violent, it grabs you from the first moments and rarely loosens its hold until the last body drops.
