“Capote” Call for movie times

In this biopic, Phillip Seymour Hoffman makes a star turn as Truman Capote as the brilliant writer investigates the grizzly murder that became the basis of his stunning book “In Cold Blood.” While the film tries desperately to do the source material justice, Capote himself is too cold a character to be loveable and too odd a man to be explained. With a tiresome pace and no answer to the eternal question of whether Capote did fall in love with his subject, it’s a wonder that the film decided to turn biopic instead of becoming yet another film adaptation of Capote’s book. The scenes of carnage pulled from the book are the most affecting of the film.

Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix try their best as June Carter Cash and the Man in Black. The film is touted as having “Oscar written all over it,” which from past experience means that it’ll be at the least disappointing spectacle and at best the spectacle you expected.
