Your weekly Armondism.

In my silence, I bet some of you haven't been keeping up with your weekly Armond White film crit. Shame on you. To remedy the situation, here's a dose of Capote-hate:
Hoffman's entire performance is on his knees (begging), utilizing his perpetual albino aura. Not just a new Dustin Hoffman, he's our Charles Laughton doing more acting than others would dare and more than is necessary. Director Bennett Miller closes in on every tic (even Catherine Keener's humdrum turn as Capote's beard among the Midwestern rubes). Capote won't be complete until Hoffman makes his Oscar season rounds, burnishing the shameless display. Blame Roger Ebert (Hoffman's next role?) for overpraising Monster. Now all SAG's a madhouse.

Feel the burn, Ebs. Buuuuurn.

Always a good read here. I've added your feed to my sample performance appraisals site so I won't be missing any good posts. I'm a human resource manager who looks at performance appraisals all day. Your blog keeps me going though. Thanks

I think you're right on track and not many people are willing to admit that they share your views. 2 lost season spoiler is an AWESOME place to discuss LOST.
