Matt's Movie Reviews

In a career that has seen actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman play a vast array of characters (and very well at that), Hoffman has found the role of a lifetime which he delivers with uncanny precision.

Hoffman tries, but mainly just gets the surface of Capote.

I am aware that virtually every critic in America if not on the planet has lauded Hoffman's portrayal of the author and that I am in the minority. Watching Hoffman I felt something primal was missing from his interpretation ... To my mind, Hoffman's work

a milestone in modern acting, and quite fascinating in any number of ways, particularly its depiction of the minutiae of the writer's life.

all kinds of of ambitions -- noble and otherwise --converge; where self-doubt is less a necessary editor than an objection to be overcome.

The performance you'll see in "Capote" is easily the best of the year. actually, the best of any year. It's one of those turns that'll be remembered for years to come, up with Welles in "Citizen Kane", Brando in "The Godfather", Nicholson in "

Estupendo retrato de una personalidad compleja y fascinante que vale por sí mismo, más allá de la formidable caracterización de Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Hoffman's conspicuously dapper turn as Capote shouldn't overshadow the murky, pervasively tense work of director Bennett Miller.

Sometimes movie biographies (even when dealing with fascinating people) are dry and familiar. Capote, on the other hand, is full of life.

Seymour da la actuación de su carrera, reviviendo el intelectualismo, la homosexualidad y el estilo corrosivo de uno de los más grandes narradores de Estados Unidos.

Hoffman is terrific in the lead role, brilliantly capturing Capote's unusual, high pitched voice and camp mannerisms, while also hinting at the calculating darkness of the man within.

Grounded in a superb screenplay, the film is entirely in the hand of Philip Seymour Hoffman as Capote, a remarkable performance that dares to dangle over the precipice of overstatement to capture a character who defies fiction.

A powerful, unsympathetic, no-frills portrayal of how steady moral decay corroded Capote's powers of expression.
