5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Twin Bill of Cinematic Splendor April 12, 2008
Format:DVD
The double feature is the 1967 adaptation of Capote's chilling book of the same name (In Cold Blood) on a gruesome murder in "small-town" America and the outstanding 2005 release chronicling the life of perhaps the most enigmatic author of the post-World War II era.

This is one of the best examples of making two movies available at an affordable price. And what makes it particularly nice is they complement each other in an artistic, historical way. There is cinematic splendor in both and certainly a welcome addition to anyone's DVD library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice to get these two together May 22, 2011
Format:DVD
This double-feature DVD of CAPOTE and IN COLD BLOOD is a handy (and cheap!) way to get two top-notch movies relating the same events with different viewpoints and in very different ways.

As many of you surely know, IN COLD BLOOD the 1967 movie was based on IN COLD BLOOD the book, Truman Capote's phenomenally successful 1966 account of a horrific mass murder in little Holcomb, Kansas in 1959 and the aftermath the killers faced. (Capote insisted on calling his work, oxymoronically, a "non-fiction novel"). By contrast, CAPOTE is a slightly fictionalized 2005 movie spanning the same time frame (1959 and the Clutter family murders to 1965 and the killers' executions). In essence it's an extended "telling of" account with Truman Capote front and center as its lead character, whereas IN COLD BLOOD author Capote stayed journalistically behind the typewriter and out of the original book, as did his research assistant, Nelle Harper Lee, who would go on to become a sensation in mid-1960 with the publication of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. In CAPOTE, mirroring the actual events, Capote and Lee form an investigative duo who scope out Holcomb and the county seat, Garden City, and speak with those who knew the slain.

IN COLD BLOOD the 1967 movie was fairly successful but at the time, though one criticism surprises me: that Alvin Dewey, lead of the K.B.I. team investigating the murders, was a "composite" that included his fellow investigators Church, Duntz and Nye. Actually, all four characters are represented in ths movie, though it's true the Forsythe/Dewey character performs many of the tasks that were in reality performed by others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cold-Blooded Capote July 21, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
"Capote" (2005) is a brilliantly conceived and rendered movie with Philip Seymour Hoffman superb as Capote. Catherine Keener is novelist Harper Lee, Clifton Collins, Jr. is marvelous as killer Perry Smith, and Chris Cooper is Alvin Dewey, the chief investigator for The Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Occasionally Seymour can be faulted for excessive mimicry in his portrayal. The movie deals with the crucial part of Capote's life when he was researching his great non-fiction novel "In Cold Blood."
The movie starts with the vast open wheat fields and the Sunday morning discovery of Nancy Clutter's body by her girlfriend. When Capote shows up in the small Kansas town, a bit too much is made of Capote's flamboyant dress by the filmmakers; people weren't that primordial even in rural Kansas.
The movie shows the incredible access and trust he gained from everyone involved as he investigated the killing of the Clutters. It is not a flattering or favorable picture of Capote but rather a searing portrait of a self-absorbed and selfish writer who prized his book above the life of Perry Smith, a man who came to probably love him. Hickock and Smith were monsters of one sort, but Capote is pictured as being a monster of another sort. The movie makes short shrift of Hickock because Capote had less access to him.
We see views of Capote at New York cocktail parties entertaining his fellow guests, showing off, being vain, and petty and later flippant when he is recounting the gory details. Truman's relationship with his boyfriend is strained by his single-mindedness and callousness toward the condemned men.
The movie cuts back in forth between Capote in Kansas investigating and his periods in Manhattan writing or party-going.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true story******** November 10, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is something else!! I don't really care for Robert Blake but, He is really good in this movie. This is a true story of a couple of ex cons who murder a farm family. It is pretty brutal. I was riveted to my seat through the whole movie. The guy who plays Truman Capote, (whose name escapes me for a moment) is awesome in this movie. At times you would think it was the real Truman Capote playing the part. If you like true thrillers, you will like this movie!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth that Reads Like Fiction October 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you like true crime novels with a literary slant, this non-fiction book does not disappoint. Capote, one of the masterful writers of the twentieth century, creates a masterpiece, which will not doubt be read for years to come. He delves into the human psyche of the criminals, but more than that Capote manipulates the minds of readers. An astonishing piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars deserving of 10 stars February 21, 2012
Format:DVD
The double feature DVD of "In Cold Blood" and "Capote" is nothing short of excellant. PLus it makes perfect sense to combine the two films into one package. "In Cold Blood" is the 1967 movie based on the non-fiction novel of the same title written by Truman Capote. Capote's novel would introduce a new style of novel based on the murder of a Kansas family back in 1959. I remember reading the novel and feeling a chill go down my back as I read how Perry Smith and Dick Hickock went about brutally killing the Cutter family. The film written and directed by Richard Brooks is just as chilling to watch. The performances by Robert Blake and Scott Wilson are nothing short of first rate. The cinematography only helps adds to the starkness of the story as you watch with dred knowing what is about to happen to the innocent family can't be stopped. The novel by Truman Capote would become his masterpiece and in the end his downfall. Starting out writing about the tragic event of the murder Capote would find himself changing the course of what the book would be about after he met the two young men who committed the heinous crime. And that is what the movie "Capote" is all about, Capote's obsession with telling the story and the fascination he had for Dick and Perry. Philip Seymour Hoffman's portrayal of Truman is spot on. It is easy to see while watching "Capote" why the Oscar for Best Actor went to Hoffman. He put a lot of time and research into understanding Capote and how he moved and acted. "Capote" may very well be Hoffman's masterpiece as an actor. Because both these films are so excellant I rate this DVD 10 stars. 5 stars for each movie. It is well worth the time to view both these films.
