Reviews

J. Hoberman Village Voice | January 05, 2006

Capote is a cool and polished hall of mirrors reflecting the ways in which Truman Capote came to write (and be written by) In Cold Blood.

Steve Murray Atlanta Journal-Constitution | October 29, 2005

Hoffman goes beyond impersonation to something close to possession.

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | October 29, 2005

Skillfully and economically put together.

Peter Howell Toronto Star | October 28, 2005

The almost perfectly realized Capote -- stumbling only in the lack of shading it gives Keener's and Greenwood's characters -- offers a sobering glimpse at what the author had to give up of his soul to achieve his success.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | October 28, 2005

A meditation on the artist's obligations to the art and to society and lines that blur when you cross them.

Bruce Westbrook Houston Chronicle | October 28, 2005

It's a fully realized look at a time and place as well as a riveting study of career obsessions warring with a sense of justice.

Rick Groen Globe and Mail | October 28, 2005

I came in expecting Hoffman's tour de force and left with a fuller appreciation of the quiet yet lethal film around him. Lethal, because what it says about the writer's craft, about what often gets destroyed in the name of creation.
