Sometimes murder is just a way to pass the time. Compulsion is a compelling stylish thriller that sees two callous law students murder a young boy in cold blood to prove their intellectual superiority. Having been raised by wealthy, snobbish families Artie Straus is a sadistic bully and Judd Steiner (Dean Stockwell) a timid introvert. The two college friends concoct the 'perfect crime' - the murder of a young boy, but their arrogance and conceit leads to their arrest. The inimitable Orson Welles plays the criminal defense lawyer, based on the famous Clarence Darrow, who takes on their almost impossible case. This outstanding courtroom drama directed by Richard Fleisher is loosely based on the notorious and horrific 1924 murder trial of thrill-killers Leopold and Loeb. It was nominated for a BAFTA and garnered the Cannes Film Festival Best Actor award for Stockwell, Dillman and Welles as well as a Palme D'Or nomination.
