I just watched Capote starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and frankly it made me hate him, the way he strung the killer along with a lie her and a lie there. I wasn’t around back then and I didn’t sit with them during the conversations he had with one of the killers, but I’m going by what the film portrayed. Truman Capote seemed like a self-centered a-hole. I haven’t had the chance to read one of his novels yet, or anything by him for that matter. I hope that I do get a chance to read something of his, and maybe it will shed a better light on the artist aside from his controversial celebrity-portrayed lifestyle. I want to know what other people think, about the writing, the film, and whatever in regards to the man.
By the way…Philip Seymour Hoffman is a phenomenal actor. Just throwing that out there. I don’t want to take anything away from him in his performance as Truman Capote, and I wish him many more great performances in his work.
