Capote develops a relationship with one of the killers while traveling back and forth from his home and the jail. Philip Seymour Hoffman gives his best acting that I have even seen. The movie has brilliant writing and a good cast.

Great film! Very slow, but once the story gets going, it grips you hard and never lets you go. Philip Seymour Hoffman is absolutely perfect and gives on the best male performances I've seen. A truly devastating performance and one that certainly makes PSH worthy of his Oscar win; it's remarkable how excellent he is. One of the absolute best of 05.

Despite a plot that occasionally gets lost in its own machinations, the greatness of Capotes lives and dies on Philip Seymour Hoffman's completely immersive performance on the unique author. Well deserving of his Oscar, Hoffman captures every nuance of the author - from his signature speech pattern to portraying his tragic range of emotions.

Cold manipulations and torn motives-a dry portrait of the author of In Cold Blood-but in no way a substitute for the rivetting book

"Capote" is honestly one of my favorite movies of all time. It showcases just how amazing Philip Seymour Hoffman is, as well as showing the brilliance of green director/writer Bennet Miller. Much better than "Infamous," this movie made me sob as well as prompted me to read the book "In Cold Blood" which was equally as fantastic. Highly recommended.

A stunning performance from Hoffman makes this one worth seeing. Even if the film's story gets bogged down at times, seeing an actor at the top of his game makes this one stand out.

Although I didn't really like the story much, Hoffman was mesmerizing as the strange and eccentric Capote.

A slow moving picture that has Hoffman at his best. The story is interesting, but not as good as In Cold Blood. Despite some interesting seens and a great performance from Hoffman, it can't be saved from pacing and the lack of plot.
