The agony of Truman Capote [Seymour Phillip Hoffman] awaiting the sentencing of his protagonists in In Cold Blood. Not knowing how his story would end was excruciating.
Our stories keep re-telling themselves. I find myself done up like a woman in the movies, from days of old, red feather in my hair, walking down the street with a suitcase and a wooden stool. Am I going to start busking? Or should I wander into a bar and find a sympathetic stranger? Only I know which story sticks to me like webbing, which story feels right, like falling into love or a soft bed or both simultaneously.
