Saw Capote last night. I'll give it a 5/10. I already knew much of the story of Truman Capote and "non-fiction novels" from communications classes at OSU, and this movie failed to make it all that interesting. Philip Seymour Hoffman seemed good, but having never seen a real life interview with Capote I don't know if it was worthy of best actor or not. I have read that the portrayal of him in Infamous (Which came out a year later) was actually better.
The sound editing in this movie was terrible. We constantly had to adjust the dial on the speakers because we couldn't hear the characters in a lot of scenes and then one scene later we'd have to yank it down because the music, sound effects, or even just dialogue was unbelievably loud.
For a movie that ran at like 110 minutes, it played MUCH longer than that. There were a lot of scenes that I felt did not propel the plot and could have easily been airlifted out and all you would have missed was more of Capote bragging about his book.
