A Movie ReelCapote: 7.5 out of 10.

This is an exceptional acting performance in a pretty decent movie. I'd recommend it based on Philip Seymour Hoffman's performance alone, but the movie isn't bad either. I didn't think it was a great flick, but it's got some depth to it and might provoke a thought or two along the way.

On Friday, I'm listing my five favourite Philip Seymour Hoffman movies. Stay tuned!

I was fascinated by the weird attachment that Capote forms with the murderers and then at how quickly he abandons them when he gets all of the information he needs. Philip Seymour Hoffman does an amazing job at portrying him as a master manipulator. I also really enjoyed the background story of his friendship with Harper Lee.

I couldn't have said it better Jill. Harper Lee was probably the only one who truly knew him.
