Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 09/30/2005
"Hoffman's portrayal of the petite yet outsize Truman impeccable -- it's bound for awards..."
Rolling Stone - 10/06/2005
"Hoffman's unmissable and unforgettable performance as Truman Capote should make him the frontrunner for every Best Actor prize in the book."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/07/2005
"[R]apt, absorbing and thrillingly perceptive....CAPOTE honors its subject by doing just what Truman Capote did. It teases, fascinates, and haunts." -- Grade: A-
New York Times - 09/27/2005
"[A] fascinating and fine-grained reconstruction....Not only does Mr. Hoffman achieve an impressive physical and vocal transformation...but he also conveys, with clarity and subtlety, the complexities of Capote's temperament."
USA Today - 09/30/2005
"The complexity of a gifted author, as well as his self-aggrandizing nature, are what the film focuses on. Hoffman delivers a thrilling and profound Oscar-caliber performance that will haunt viewers well after the movie is over."
Premiere - 11/01/2005
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Catherine Keener is remarkably subtle and soulful as Capote's friend and helpmeet Harper Lee."
Uncut - 03/01/2006
5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he movie steers its own delicate course through the ethical minefields of 'faction' with consummate skill....It's Hoffman's film -- a tour de force..."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2006
"Philip Seymour Hoffman is in complete control of his effects....The Oscar-worthy achievement is really the voice..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 03/01/2006
"[I]t's a stark, complex and ultimately stunning examination of a man who exploited others for professional gain and the emotional price he paid."
Total Film - 08/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "[Miller] deserves much credit for his sedate, seemingly effortless direction and beautifully composed style."
Ultimate DVD - 08/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Beautifully shot and flawlessly acted; this captures the essence of the iconic novel and also brings a lingering poignancy to a portrait of a man as troubled and haunted as the novel's subjects."
Wall Street Journal - 10/16/2009
"Ms. Keener's quiet austerity provides a counterbalance to Mr. Hoffman's brilliance."
