Bookplanet: a movie about a writer

The movie Capote is here. Not often one gets a movie about a writer, but here is one. From this review in the NY Times, it sounds pretty good. So if you want to see a movie about something real -- not about explosions, superhero powers, or surgically-enhanced tatas -- check it out. The central mincingly queer performance looks Oscar-worthy. That's what you get Oscars for: playing mental defectives, Hannibal cannibals, holocaust victims, and screaming gender-benders. Now if you were to get the role of a queer Mongoloid holocaust victim in a wheelchair with a cleft palate, you'd be a shoe-in at Oscar time. Having to wear a colostony bag will cinch it.
