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

A kind of vampiric leech craft.

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

"First viewing - Aug. 25th Thanks largely to a masterful performance by the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman, this was well worth watching. I can't speak to the accuracy of the film, but it paints an interesting portrait of its subject as he manipulates those around him to get what he wants. One moment he's saccharine, the next he's laughing at someone behind his back. I personally found the whole film very compelling, the cast is solid all around (I might have picked someone else to play Perry"
