True Story or not, stick to the facts

I saw an interesting movie over the weekend.  It's called True Story and I really can't believe I let this one slip under the radar.  This is a true story about former New York Times Magazine reporter Michael Finkel. Finkel climbed the ranks to a coveted position as a feature writer but then due to inaccuracies in some of his pieces the magazine let him go.  This is where things get really crazy, it turns out a murderer was using Finkel's name as an alias.  Finkel ends up interviewing the murderer and becoming one his closet confidants. Finkel goes on to write a book about his interactions with murderer Christian Longo. For journalism and suspense fans this is definitely a good movie.
