A brilliant portrait of an author at his height
22 February 2006 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This short film by the brilliant documentarians Albert and David Maysles captures Truman Capote at the very height of his career and influence during the aftermath of the publication of IN COLD BLOOD. We see Capote taking Alvin Dewey and his wife around New York City for the first time, Capote in his Long Island home chatting with a Newsweek reporter, as well as various book signings and functions centered on the book.

There is no doubt that Phillip Seymour Hoffman used this film extensively to arrive at his Capote performance. This short (30 mins.) film would make an excellent extra in a future deluxe DVD release of CAPOTE.

We get hints of his eventual downfall- he is clearly drunk in some scenes. The most poignant moment comes as he shows the Newsweek reporter letters from Perry Smith. He reads one out loud, and clutches the letter to his chest as if he is about to cry.

This film is available to viewing at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York and Beverly Hills.
