Over the weekend, I watched Capote
on my recently repaired computer (with new optical drive). It was one of the best movies I saw in recent years. Its depiction of the moral ambiguity of writing--particularly journalism--is timely. Moreover, it does exactly what all biopics should do, but (almost always) don't: examine an important transition in a person's life, rather than trying to summarize an entire lifetime.
While reading more about Truman Capote and In Cold Blood
, I found an awesome interview that Capote gave his friend George Plimpton when the book was released. Check it out: The Story Behind a Nonfiction Novel
