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

Pjillip Seymour Hoffman's best effort. Outstanding

An excellent film. Every aspect of this film is masterful. Hoffman's performance as Capote is nothing short of brilliant, and all the supporting actors and actresses do an equally incredible job. The direction and cinematography are also extraordinary, but what I think made the film is the story and screenplay. The storyline, plot and dialogue were Capote's greatest strength. The film, especially the early parts, are dominated with blues and yellows- a technique that greatly contributed to the grim and dark tone of the film. The film moves a little slow for the average moviegoer, but will capture the intrigue of cinephiles. From the stunning imagery, to the camera-work, to the superb acting and the wonderful plot and dialogue, this film captures the ego-maniacal essence of Truman Capote a...
