I watched "Capote" tonight, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. I saw it years ago, and now I've seen it again.
I liked Hoffman a lot as an actor. I liked him as Brandt in "The Big Lebowski," and I loved him as Truman Capote in "Capote."
I'm not one to get all agog about celebrities, generally speaking, but he was so good in this movie, that it really was easy to forget you were even watching a movie.
I'm not going to say much about his heroin addiction, other than if you've ever been close to a person who is addicted to something, you know that part of it is a physical need, and part of it is a desire to escape. For somebody as creative as him, I could see where this world might be an unbearably dreary place.
By the way, did you know you can watch just about any movie you want online, in its entirety, for free? That's how I just watched "Capote."
