Overly simplistic movie review: “Capote”


Great movie. Is really less about Capote and more about the events surrounding the writing of In Cold Blood, the true account of the brutal murder of a rural Kansas family. Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s portrayal is top notch and the film itself is beautiful and often funny. I left feeling heavy with thought and emotional stillness, which to me is the sign that I have seen something worth seeing. This feeling persisted. Highly recommended.

  1. Did you know they filmed a bunch of that movie in Austin? And they filmed some of it at my coworker’s house. Dr. L’s house was used as the set for the neighbor’s house, the people who lived next door to the In Cold Blood family. We went by his place and saw the room that the movie people had decorated.
