Structurally, the film's off-kilter. The start of the relationship is rushed through, while the supposedly crucial notice period feels increasingly directionless. Which leaves the comic strand - and that, by and large, delivers.
While there are pleasures to be had from watching so many grand actresses strut their stuff, the fact is that the overriding preoccupation here rests with surface impressions rather than psychological probity.
With dyed hair and tattoos, Craig nails the incredible complexity of a man who juggles gentleness with violence. The relationship between Capote and Perry is overtly moving and there was a big lump in my throat as the final chapters played out.
To recreate the gossipy Manhattan arena that Capote navigated with such ease and documented with such malice, you need dialogue that rings like scatter-shot and the film's script, written by its director Douglas McGrath, doesn't have it.
Ultimately the script's often sharp social satire is drowned out by the noise and confusion. It is also undercut by casting virtually all the psychopathically murderous criminals as minority-group members.
This is a great movie. Its cute funny and not too much romance or violence. Was happy overall. It was in the shrink wrap not damaged. I just wish it had come with all the other items I had ordered all of which were in stock. But very happy with this product.
This is the third time I have bought this movie and it doesn't work!! It's get less then half way through the movie and then there is no more data! The movie stops and goes to the chapter list but only has part of the list there as the information is not on the disk. I buy movies from walmart all the time, in store and on line and 1 in 5 movies doens't work!
This movie was ordered on 19 April and they were delivered to the Walmart store on 1 May. This procedure is highly flawed and I will never use Walmart special order system again. I did not like the way the website does not offer the option to pay online and I had to go to the store to pay. It was an inconvenience and it was an overall poor way to conduct business.
Director Barbet Schroeder, whose Barfly (1987) remains one of the most memorable in my mental filmbank, shoots this script with the kind of concentrated power that turns every scene into the most effective tool emotionally as well as expositionally.
I am an Evangelist, and seen this movie many times. It's a classic. The Bible is evident in this movie and the person who created it must have an intimate connection with God (Jesus) for sure. It's the perfect opposite of The Ten Commandments in that it brought to life a feeling of what happened. For example, The Ten Commandments bring rememberance of the time past, but this edition place you there. The brotherly relationship will interpret what I'm really trying to say, one must leave sometimes, even if the transition is a tough one - and God's (Jesus's) work must get done. It shows the love and friendship shared by two brothers and the call of God versus freewill..\nPLEASE GET THIS FOR YOUR COLLECTION IT'S A BREATH OF FRESH AIR...
