Bleak House

Various things over the weekend: I saw the marvelous Cezanne show at the National Gallery. It makes one realize how important he is to modern painting. He seems to have done everything first, and gotten too little credit for it

Also I saw Capote, a very strange and quiet little film. Philip Seymour Hoffmann is a shoe-in for the Oscar. Katherine Keener is fabulous – when was she ever not? As was Chris Cooper. It’s odd, the movie was in color but I remember it in black and white.

These things, and Bleak House on PBS were a pleasant relief from the tooth-grinding rage and toxic despair that elicited by the Junta.
