seymour hoffman, considering his real-life, different voice, is sensational here. his talent is let down by this standard and dull film.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman's greatest performance; "capote" is an extraordinary biopic with great storytelling and great direction.

Philip Hoffman's performance in this movie is of first-rate. As for the movie itself it raises some difficult topics of whether it's morally justifiable to be infatuated with serial killers even in the name of art. The movie is cold and distant like Truman Capote himself.

Wow, so close to perfection!

Great movie, interesting historically since I didn't know anything about Truman Capote, even if he is one of the most famous writers of America. Incredible performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman...he is missed.

Great movie. Though it drags in moments, it's still a very compelling story to watch thanks to thrilling direction from Miller and hauntingly captivating performances from its cast, especially Hoffman and Collins, Jr.

I struggled till the end but I wanted to finish it. maybe it was only my mood, but I haven't like it at all. I found PS Hofman surely very good, but the italian doubling was really annoying.

interesting story about these murders and good cast, but, hard to watch at times

Excellent movie, authenticity, acting and cinematography are spot on. Not a lot of action and overly sympathetic towards the killers though.

Capote creeps up on you until you're just as devastated as the eponymous lead.

Well made of the story behind his moat famous book. Good insight into the mind of the writer and gives some realistic thoughts on what really happened behind the scenes

Without Philip Seymour Hoffman this movie is a 2 star at best. The acting by Hoffman was absolutely brilliant as if you were watching Truman Capote. Well deserving of the Oscar. RIP PSH

Phillip Seymour Hoffman is an excellent performance in this movie.

Terrific performances esp Philip Hoffman who transforms into Capote. A hard film to watch, but very interesting character study and story. In some ways reminded me of Dead Man Walking. Basically a movie about the famous author Capote and how he came to write his infamous novel In Cold Blood, considered the first non-fiction novel. The self absorbed genius writer at first is very cold like the killings he is writing about, but slowly he starts to feel for the killers. In writing the novel Capote finds himself getting way too involved when it's too late, esp when he finds similarities and friendship among one of the killers.

The pace is too slow - it felt like more than 115 minutes. While Hoffman's portrayal of Capote was probably accurate, 115 minutes of Capote's annoying voice is about 114 minutes more than I could take.

Powered by an unforgettable performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman, director Bennett Miller gently guides the audience through a compelling and heartfelt narrative about one of the most celebrated writers in history.

Hoffman's Oscar-winning performance is also his most boring.
July 15, 2016
Director Bennett Miller successfully produces a subdued, gripping account of Truman Capote's later life, and gets a masterful, possibly career best performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman.
