Maxine also points me to Light Reading and Annie Proulx's Sour Grapes Rant
Philip Seymour Hoffman did not merely impersonate Truman Capote and 'Capote' was a much better written and directed film than 'Brokeback Mountain', which is one of those films you think less and less of the farther you get from it. Two guys meet, have sex, separate. Get married, meet again, have sex, separate. Meet again - well, you get the idea. 'Capote' even works as literary criticism. I hadn't realized until I saw the film that not only was the Clutter murder committed in cold blood; so was Capote's book. And Capote knew it. I even think 'Capote' makes a better point about homosexuality. The little guy knew how people looked at him and thought about him - and wasn't intimidated one bit by it. In his way, Capote was as tough any ranch hand.
