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.

''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.

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)

"Truman Capote (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is gathering resources to publish his latest novel “In Cold Blood,” a non-fictionalized account on the Clutter Family murders in Kansas. His main inspiration comes from his interviews with the murder suspects Perry Smith (Clifton Collins, Jr.), and Dick Hickock (Mark Pellegrino), under permission from Detective Alvin Dewey (Chris Cooper) and accompanied by his best friend Nelle Harper Lee (Catherine Keener). During his research, Capote develops a friend"

" Notes: After years of being one of the best supporting actors around, it was time for Philip Seymour Hoffman to shine in a leading part. Finally, he got his shot with this flick, 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 a very strong directing début.
