Aroview: Polished and sophisticated dramatisation of how writer Truman Capote came to research and create his seminal 'true-crime' masterpiece IN COLD BLOOD, based on a 1959 mass-killing in Kansas.
Dominated by an Oscar-winning performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman which nails the eccentric foibles and ruthless narcissism of Capote to a tee, this proves a gripping account of the meeting of journalistic and creative processes. As the writer goes on to develop strong relationships with one of the killers on death-row, the ambiguities of his situation are brought into ever more intimate focus, culminating in a penetrating, but sympathetic critique of artistic identification and exploitation.
