Capote

Intelligent movie--well done--but I was surprised that Truman Capote was repeatedly portrayed as a liar--supporting Janet Malcolm (of the New Yorker), who argued that all writers betray their sources--(not true at all)--

When Capote's "In Cold Blood" was being serialized in the New Yorker, we had a subscription--we were mesmerized-- we even went out on a Sunday night to buy the last installment, rather than wait a day or two--amazingly, we met a neighboring couple--at the same newsstand for the same reason!
