Linklater on Bernie

On the TribTalk site, filmmaker Richard Linklater authored an earnest and revealing account of how he came to make the movie "Bernie," his relationship with its central subject, Bernie Tiede ("a nice guy who did a bad thing"), and his involvement in the murderer's legal case. Go read it. A summary won't do it justice, it's quite well written, and many of his observations apply beyond beyond the bounds of this particular episode.
