A Brilliant Performance

This film kind of tore me into two different directions where on one hand I marveled at perhaps one of the most brilliant acting performances I have seen by Philip Seymour Hoffman in his role as Truman Capote, and on the other I restlessly craved for a more engaging storyline.

Without a doubt, Truman Capote's works are of literal genius and gripping beyond what any film could ever ... read more

''Sometimes when I think of how good my book is going to be, I can't breathe.''

Truman Capote (Hoffman), during his research for his book In Cold Blood, an account of the murder of a Kansas family, the writer develops a close relationship with Perry Smith, one of the killers.

Finding Philip Seymour Hoffman to be an exceptional actor, Capote was on my list of movies to view. I knew Truman Capote was an excellent author, with fantastic writing but I had no other knowledge of his personal life. This opened up my eye. The whole aspect of "In Cold Blood", which is what this film revolves around; takes a deep look into Capote's mindset and how this novel came about.

Description: In 1959, Truman Capote, a popular writer for The New Yorker, learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story material, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, In Cold Blood. To that end, he arranges extensive interviews with the prisoners, especially with Perry Smith, a quiet and articulate man with a troubled history. As he works on his book, Capote feels some compassion for Perry which in part prompts him ... (more)

My movie year 2015 (648 movies items)

"26.8. (Teatteri) Philip Seymour Hoffman luo ärsyttävyyttä oikein mainiosti hahmoonsa, joka näkee tappajat vain välineinä spektaakkelin tavoitteluun, kunnes huomaa näidenkin olevan ihmisiä. Lopulta on paha sanoa, löytyykö tästä makeilevasta lässyttäjästä jotain sydäntä kaiken hyväksikäytön ja itsekeskeisyyden takaa, vai onko hän ainoastaan omaan napaansa tuijottava valheellinen narsisti. Käsistä karanneen alkoholismin ja töiden kesken jäännin valossa kallistunen edelli"

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: March (35 movies items)

"March 11 "It's as if Perry and I grew up in the same house. And one day he stood up and went out the back door, while I went out the front." While I did like this movie, I felt like it could've been better. I was kind of disappointed because I was expecting this movie to be about Truman Capote's life, but it was just about a certain part of it. I also thought the plot for this movie could've worked really well, but the way it was executed just felt like Dead Man Walking except with Truman Ca"

“There are many ways to tackle a celebrity biographical film, typically they lean hard on the “greatest hits” approach, presenting a series of vignettes that don’t add up to a complete portrait or point-of-view as to why this artist mattered. Instead these films gloss over everything that went into crafting their public image or artistry, presenting a canonized portrait of the persona, one in which they seemed to spring fully formed from the ephemera of the culture of their time in order to move things forward. These films are tedious, and the examples of them too numerous to mention, far better are the films which zero in on one specific moment and use it to explore why this person mattered.

Capote focuses in on the titular author’s decision to take a grisly murder story ” read more
