Truman Capote was a singular figure in the 20th century. He presented himself unapologetically on television at a time when most gay men took pains to avoid scrutiny. His high-pitched voice imparted wit and indiscretion. His fiction was both popular and critically revered; then he reinvented non-fiction and crime writing with ”In Cold Blood”. His work has a deep cinematic legacy from the sanitized adaptation of ”Breakfast at Tiffany's” to Philip Seymour Hoffman's portrayal in ”Capote”. Now, ”The Capote Tapes” delivers a fresh portrait that reinvigorates our understanding of this vital writer, much like ”I Am Not Your Negro” renewed our sense of James Baldwin. Among the film's revelations are newly discovered tapes of interviews that ”The Paris Review” co-founder George Plimpton conducted with Capote's friends for a never-completed biography.
