Yesterday I saw Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Capote movie, a “tragic story of unfulfilled love”, and I loved it. I see so few movies nowadays, as they are so noisy. This one was on purpose quite and slow. The music by Mychael Danna was just right.
Most critics felt the same. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 92% Fresh Reading.
If you saw the movie, you'll appreciate the following; Here’s a beautiful, extended collection of photos related to "In Cold Blood” from Lawrence, KS Journal-World's 40th anniversary of the non-fiction novel .

Nice collection of links. I haven't seen the movie yet because there are no theaters around me showing it. (I could have travelled into Boston to see it however but since I work there I prefer to spend my weekends away from the city) It's pretty sad when a movie like Capote isn't even shown anymore in a lot of theaters.

It is a real shame that Harry Browne has passed away.
