I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, it was very well done but a slower than I was expecting. Most of the movie is told strictly from the view point of Capote meaning that it shows everything he knew, the events he went to and the information he was directly told. This means that the movie does not show any of the police work at all and only shows the two murders because Capote went and visited them on regular and we were only shown the events of the night of the murders because one of the men described what happened to Capote.

In a way this movie was more about the relationship between Capote and one of the murders, Perry Smith, who he strongly identifies with, with the murders and the book Capote is writing in the background.
