Philip Seymour Hoffman obtuvo un merecidísimo Oscar por su interpretación de Truman Capote, probablemente el papel de su vida, con el que alcanza la excelencia no sólo porque consiga calcar la forma de hablar y de moverse del escritor, sino porque logra además transmitir la ambigua relación que mantuvo Truman Capote con los asesinos, sobre todo con uno de ellos, una relación en parte interesada, pues eran el material de su novela, y en parte personal y sentimental. La necesidad de que fueran ajusticiados para poder así poner fin a su novela junto con la barbaridad que implicaba el deseo de que eso ocurriera justo por ese motivo, le supuso un tormento moral que hizo que Capote no volviera a ser el mismo después de escribir aquella obra.
Al margen del papel de Seymour Hoffman, la película es correcta, sin más. Muy bien ambientada en la época y con una fotografía quizás demasiado preciosista.Leer más ›

I find it a sad irony that Phillip Seymour Hoffman died of the same thing as Truman Capote :( Both so talented.
ACTING: Phillip Seymore Hoffman gives a tour de force performance of Truman Capote. Not only did he capture the pompous nature of the writer, but he captured the emotion within him as a human being. Clifton Collins Jr. gives an amazing performance as the very ambiguous Perry Smith. The two actors also play off each other very well, their acting envelopes the audience into the atmosphere of the film and makes their conversations all the more emotional. Both actors are worthy of nominations, and Hoffman may have given a performance that translates into Oscar.
BOTTOM LINE: While some people may find the first quarter of the film slow, it picks up and ends up being one of those movies that stays with you long after you see it. The performances are stellar, and they add to the film's effect on the audience. Bennet Miller's direction is on the mark as he spends the right amount of time with each character, and he sets up the third act of the film perfectly
The movie surrounds the creation of the non-fiction novel IN COLD BLOOD, about a brutal murder of a family in a small farming community. For 1959, it was particularly brutal (although while watching the film, I couldn't help thinking that if the same happened today, it might not even make the national news), and Capote initially sets out to write an article about the effects of the killings on the community. But he's first drawn in by the crimes and a fascination with the brutality. (He even peeks in on the closed caskets to discover that the faces of the victims have been swaddled in cotton because they were so badly damaged by the shotgun blasts.) He wins the reluctant trust of the head law enforcement official (Chris Cooper) and the story begins to take shape. But when the perpetrators are caught, and Capote attends the perp walk, he is instantly drawn to one suspect, Perry King. He finagles a meeting with King and discovers a soft-spoken, highly intelligent soul, in some ways a kindred spirit. Capote is also gay, and the film hints that there might have been a physical attraction to Perry, but it never asserts this as a primary motivator...which is good, because there is no real historical evidence for this, and it would have cheapened this highly textured and layered movie.
Capote is a man torn apart by conflicting feelings. He misses his lover back home (well-played by a gently aging Bruce Greenwood) but he begins to feel at home in the small town. His manner of dressing even begins to tone down for the "local folk." He is horrified by the crime, but drawn to King. He also senses that he has the makings of a groundbreaking book. King and his partner are quickly tried and sentenced to death...before Capote can get all he needs from King. So he arranges high-priced legal help for the men, just to draw out the process. Naturally, King is grateful for the friendship. But is Capote really a friend? Or is he just a selfish man? The movie has it both ways...which is its strength. At no time does it settle for easy answers or clichéd feelings. Hoffman is compelled again and again to depict a man who doesn't clearly know his own heart...or doesn't want to face it. He runs for months at a time, but is pulled in again and again. Hoffman handles these challenges brilliantly. Frankly, I doubt there is another film actor working right now capable of executing this role. I can't even imagine who else the director might have had in mind for the part.
Another key role (an another Oscar nomination, one can hope) is the character of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD author Harper Lee, played by Catherine Keener, one of the best actresses around. At first, she is simply his lifelong friend and now his "research assistant." They travel to the crime scene together and she helps Truman seem a little more normal. But halfway through the film, her book is published, and she becomes the most celebrated writer in America. Capote is torn apart by jealousy. It's an unattractive side to him, and there is a brief but lovely scene when Lee recognizes how torn up Capote is, and instead of confronting her old friend (and believe me, she isn't one to necessarily spare his feelings), she offers a brief moment of comfort. Her understanding allows us to know just deeply Capote has gone off his tracks at this point.
Towards the end of the film, all the appeals run out for the two condemned men, and there are some death row and execution scenes that are downright chilling. We don't feel bad that the men are sentenced to die, but the quietness of the scenes is very effective. Yes, executions make almost naturally compelling drama, but the filmmakers have gone above and beyond. These are not glossy scenes (a la THE GREEN MILE or DEAD MAN WALKING); they are dusty, grim and heart pounding. The young actor Clifton Collins Jr, who plays Perry, does a terrific job throughout, but he shines in these scenes. Never over the top, we nonetheless get a sense of the terror and resignation he is feeling. And we can get a pretty good idea of why Capote's career descended into booze and ineffectuality after these events.
The movie is not flawless. Although it's less than two hours, the pace is just a little slack and indulgent, and the movie feels just a little bit too long. While the movie does a terrific job in art direction (it feels beautifully of the late `50s and early `60s), the cinematography seemed a bit obvious at times. It used the same establishing show of New York City over and over. I assume some of this was budget limitations, but it's a flaw nonetheless. But these are minor flaws. What the film DOES have going for it is a terrific script, a compelling story, and a fistful of textured, highly intelligent performances. I highly recommend this film...one of the best of the year.
