Its power comes from the slow, steady build to the execution of Perry Smith, the man half-responsible for the murders of a farming family of four, and what that death does to Capote.

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.

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

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 "

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.
