Watch: Capote 2005 123movies, Full Movie Online – Famed writer Truman Capote, southern born and bred but now part of the New York City social circle, is growing weary of his current assignment of writing autobiographical type pieces for the New Yorker. After reading a newspaper article about the just occurred November 14, 1959 cold blooded murders of the Clutter family in their rural Kansas home, Truman feels compelled to write about that event as his next article. So he and his personal assistant Nelle Harper Lee, also a southern born New Yorker and an aspiring writer of her own, head to Kansas to research the story first-hand. Truman hopes to use his celebrity status to gain access to whomever he needs, such as to Laura Kinney, a friend of the Clutter daughter she who discovered the bodies, and to Alvin Dewey, the lead police investigator and also a Clutter family friend. If his celebrity doesn’t work, Truman will grease the wheels by whatever means necessary. When the police eventually charge suspects, two young men named Dick Hickcock and Perry Smith, Truman uses those same tactics to gain access to them. Truman’s fascination with the story makes him believe that he can revolutionize writing by expanding the germ of the article into what he calls a non-fiction novel. His personal involvement also changes as he grows emotionally attached to Perry, the seemingly sensitive and thus probable submissive in the criminal pairing, thus Truman becoming part of the story itself. Article or non-fiction novel, Truman knows that he has to take it to its natural conclusion, something which he cannot force. But also missing are the details of the November 14, 1959 event itself, something that neither Dick or Perry have divulged even in testimony..
Plot: A biopic of writer Truman Capote and his assignment for The New Yorker to write the non-fiction book “In Cold Blood”.

Philip Seymour Capote
I finally got to see the Best Actor performance of Philip Seymour Hoffman as the late writer and icon Truman Capote. It’s based on the biography published in the Eighties entitled Capote by Gerald Clarke.

The only part of the book the film deals with is the creation and completion of Capote’s landmark docunovel In Cold Blood. And the film is remarkably faithful to the details described in the book. In 1959 in his Brooklyn Heights apartment, Truman Capote read about the slaying of a Kansas family named Clutter in some small town called Holcomb. He decides to go west and investigate every aspect of this gruesome tragedy. That includes numerous interviews with both the suspects that are eventually caught, tried, and convicted.

With one of them, Perry Smith, Capote forms a strange relationship as he tries to get the real story about what happened in that Kansas farm house that night in 1959 by the only two left who can tell it. And Smith who is flattered by all the attention this celebrity is giving him. It’s sad, but Perry Smith becomes almost a celebrity by reflection at a time when he’s facing execution. Clifton Collins, Jr. plays Smith and it’s a subtle piece of acting he does. We see a lost little boy in those scenes with Capote in prison, but we also never forget this man is a stone cold killer who went to this farm house in the mistaken belief that Mr. Clutter had squirreled away a large sum of cash because he didn’t trust banks.

Not as foolish as you might think. In the generation before during the Depression when banks did fail, a lot of people lost their faith in financial institutions. In fact an uncle and aunt of mine had that happen to them before they passed on the last decade.

But the film belongs to Philip Seymour Hoffman. I first saw Hoffman on screen playing Scotty G in Boogie Nights. It was also a gay character, but light years from the sophisticated and glamorous Truman Capote. Scotty G was the backward kid who crushes out big time on Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights. Hoffman is an player of extraordinary range to successfully essay both Capote and Scotty G.

This was an extraordinary year in the Academy Awards with nominations going to performers who played real life people. Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash, George Clooney as Edward R. Murrow, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as Truman Capote. And every one of them gave a performance that made me think I was seeing old film clips of their characters.

I recommend the film. As a story it can stand on its own. But I also recommend highly the book by Gerald Clarke. For those of you liked the film and like Philip Seymour Hoffman in the part, the biography Capote is a fascinating read, a glimpse into gay America, both pre and post the Stonewall Riots. And it’s a good social history of the times.

Review By: bkoganbing
The Truman show.
Philip Seymour Hoffman, who we first noticed in *Scent of a Woman* some 13 years ago when he turned a fairly clichéd character into a memorable character study, finds his apotheosis — some would say his inevitable apotheosis — as Truman Capote in Bennett Miller’s *Capote*. The writer died in 1984, and furthermore had spent the last 15 or so years of his life in relative seclusion, if you disregard his addled presence at Studio 54 and the occasional “Tonight Show” appearance. Therefore, to someone like myself, reared in the Seventies and Eighties and carrying no burning memories of the fellow, the exactitude of Hoffman’s mimicry of Capote is neither here nor there. This is, above and beyond any caviling about how precise Hoffman’s impersonation is of Capote, a full-bodied, well-rounded character, whose primary interest in serving the film is to make us consider the wages of art.

Older members of the audience, by which I mean those who remember the Sixties, may be forgiven a degree of burn-out: after all, there was Capote’s book “In Cold Blood”, the movie on which it was based, and the writer’s own self-referential celebrity. Been there and done that? Not quite: this time, we view the story ABOUT the story from the writer’s perspective. It is a credit to Gerald Clarke, who wrote the book on which the film is based, Dan Futterman, who wrote the screenplay, and director Miller that this well-worn material becomes urgent and interesting again. On a wider social level, *Capote* makes a damning statement about our current fascination with “true crime” stories, which had been reinforced by Norman Mailer’s “Executioner’s Song” in the Seventies and has finally become noxiously regnant with cable TV’s endless hours of coverage of the Peterson case and others like it. I’m not suggesting that people were not interested in this tawdry material before Capote, but the movie implicitly blames him for the shameless modern-day intertwining of writers (or TV reporters) with the crimes and criminals that they’re covering. The movie also has something to say about how self-centered writers can be: Capote can only say “What’s the fuss all about?” in reference to friend and fellow novelist Harper Lee’s success with “To Kill a Mockingbird”. After watching Smith and Hickock get hung for their crimes, Capote whines, “I’ll never get over it” — to which Lee (played by the great Catherine Keener) replies with deadpan malice, “You’re still ALIVE, Truman.” Amen!

However, Capote’s self-pity also contains the mere truth. *Capote* is the tragedy of a man who scrapped his own decency in order to write one of the great American novels of the 20th century. We observe the incremental milestones along the path toward greatness and damnation: Capote ingratiating himself with the Kansas locals; befriending the more sensitive and intelligent of the two murderers, Perry Smith; helping to arrange appeals for the murderers so that they’ll stay alive long enough for him to collect enough information to finish his novel; smoothly lying to Smith about what he’s actually writing about the case, even down to the book’s title; and finally living with the consequences of his exploitative behavior. Art is achieved with devastating cost to the artist. Of course, this theme isn’t exactly new, but Philip Seymour Hoffman makes it visceral with a performance containing a kaleidoscope of human behavior: cocky and in his element with his high-brow drinking pals in New York; smooth and charming as the “funny fag” stereotype (modeled on characters in the Thirties’ films of Ernst Lubitsch and others) in Sheriff Dewey’s home; gentle and nurturing to, and even spoon-feeding, Perry Smith during the latter’s attempt at suicide-by-starvation in prison; abruptly turning the tables on Smith when Smith continues to remain close-mouthed about the night of the murders. This latter scene, in which Capote lashes out at his subject in that carefully modulated castrato voice of his, will go down in the annals of film history as perhaps the prime example of just how much contempt one human being can demonstrate to another. Granted, Perry Smith was an abomination of a man who deserved execution . . . but Hoffman’s icy contempt still stabs us. Inhumanity is not always physically violent.

A difficult film. You will walk out of it feeling uncomfortable and contemplative. There’s still some time remaining in the calendar as of this writing (10/22/05), but I doubt I’ll see a better American movie this year. 9 stars out of 10.
