Kathryn Bigelow’s Blue Steel is, if nothing else, a fascinating film… The exploration of a killer’s psyche, years before this kind of psychological examination became the norm, and the traumatic interplay between hunter and hunted, is innovative to be sure.

This is a well-made film, one that Bigelow has a strong technical grasp for, and Jamie Lee Curtis is an effective dramatic lead. That said, something about this film still left me feeling cold; I feel like that’s at least partially intentionally, but I still just couldn’t get into this film the way I might have hoped.
