Capote! - Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Clifton Collins Jr.
When four innocent people are murdered. The country cops find the case too hard to crack. Tough talking city cop Capote is called in to bust some skulls and bring the bad guys in.
Capote finds out the bad guys are already in jail and gets himself convicted of a fake crime so he can serve the bad guys with "Capote Justice" (thump their skulls).
Capote gets in a tussle with the bad dudes but they gang up on him and throw him from a roof where he breaks his own legs.
The bad dudes get killed anyway because they have life sentences and Capote makes a million bucks because he writes a book about it called IN COLD BLOOD.
Altogether a bit far fetched but Philip Seymour Hoffman is great as the "take no shit" detective. A career best.
Macho Cowboy Rating: 3/5 stars.
