CAPOTE
2005, Sony Repertory, 114 min, USA, Dir: Bennett Miller

Bennett Miller’s procedural about the writing of In Cold Blood is no conventional biopic but a moving and provocative account of the creative process. In an Academy Award-winning performance, Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Truman Capote as a charming but ruthlessly self-interested man for whom everything - even friendship and love - is at its core raw material for his art. Chris Cooper and Catherine Keener give rich supporting performances, and Dan Futterman’s literate script is both thrillingly entertaining and unsettlingly dark.
