    Just saw it on DVD Saturday. It was an interesting movie about the writing of his book “In Cold Blood”. I saw Truman many times on Carson, Philip Hoffman does a great job of capturing his mannerisms, voice etc. It was close to watching the real Truman.

    You should, Dan. Then post, you seem objective, I would like to hear what you think about it. Our perspectives are different. I saw him on the tonight show many times, you are younger and probably did not. I was surprised by what the movie revealed (to me).

    Yeah, I've heard a lot of good things, I just haven't gotten around to seeing it. Probably because I keep buying full seasons of TV shows on DVD which then take up all my viewing time.

    At first I was under the impression that it was just a biopic on Capote. Now that I know it's mostly about In Cold Blood, I'm even more interested from a writer's perspective.
