Netflix movie review: The Pale Blue Eye – Christian Bale plays detective in Edgar Allan Poe-inspired murder mystery

  • Christian Bale plays a retired detective investigating a series of gruesome killings at the West Point US military academy in 1830, with Poe as his adviser
  • The story is shot through with the same sense of dread and foreboding as is found in much of Poe’s writing, but is rarely truly terrifying
