Disturbing in parts, but fascinating to see. Val and I went to the cinema to see it and that always makes certain scenes more dynamic.
I enjoyed this movie, but in a different way than I usually enjoy a movie. I like true stories, first of all. This supplied that. I have an appreciation for learning about famous people. In Capote's case, it was a classic example of a book I could write called, "How to Lose Successfully".
You know? This guy had it, so-called, "all", but he was miserable and after gaining this criminal's confidence, he had to deny his own self-dignity in order to basically stab the guy in the back.
It was sort of shocking to see how greed or the desire for self-aggrandisment, can drive you to manipulate others and then betray their trust.
It was spooky, but thank God it didn't dwell excessively on the gorey parts. Just enough to appall you and then take you to the next phase of the game.
Hoffman has turned out to be an amazing actor. It's almost scary how he can make you believe he IS in fact Truman Capote.
I thought it was worth the $9 entry fee.
