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

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.

Capote

“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

A very good movie

“After years of playing some phenomenal supporting parts, it was time for Philip Seymour Hoffman to shine in a lead part. Finally, he got his shot with this flick and, of course, everybody was blown away and he was deservedly rewarded by an Academy award. Even though Hoffman usually gets most of the credit concerning this movie, I think we shouldn't forget Bennett Miller who delivered here one of the finest directing débuts ever made. Honestly, I must confess, I haven't read 'In Cold Blood' but I don't think it is really necessary to appreciate this story because, eventually, it is not exactly about this book, it is more about Capote himself who managed after years and years of hard work and obsession to craft one of the best book ever written and, then eventually, won't be able to write a” read more
