Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the convicted killers, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction

"Der Folkmusiker Llewyn Davis hat im New York der frühen 1960er-Jahre wenig Erfolg, dafür aber jede Menge Probleme, die ihn schließlich auf eine Reise treiben. Mit dem Porträt des "Verlierer"-Antihelden, der stoisch an seiner Kunst festhält, entfaltet sich eine großartige, durchaus etwas boshaft erzählte Apotheose des Scheiterns. Diese weitet sich zum mit akribischer Liebe gestalteten Zeitbild der "Sixties" und der Folkmusik-Szene, das einen ähnlichen Respekt vor der Musik an den Tag legt wie sein Held." []

"Mit einer Baseball-Mannschaft geht es bergab, weil der finanzschwache Verein seine Spitzenspieler nicht halten kann. Zusammen mit seinem neuen Partner sucht ihr auch privat gebeutelter Manager sein Heil in der gegenteiligen Strategie: Er verpflichtet Spieler, die von anderen Vereinen ausgemustert wurden, und beweist, dass auch in "Losern" jede Menge Potenzial stecken kann. Sportfilm nach bewährtem Muster, der sich dank seiner emotionalen und bildgewaltigen Inszenierung sowie der herausragenden Besetzung zum mitreißenden Plädoyer für Spielfreude, Solidarität und Unkorrumpierbarkeit durch die Dominanz kapitalistischer Marktmechanismen im Sport mausert." []
