Deceitful Above All Things

The Castro Theater has two posters up for "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things", based on the book by "JT Leroy", who of course it turns out was never who "he" said he was. Not surprisingly, the film posters deal with the hoax head on.

Heart Poster
The full film poster. Sorry for the reflection.

Quote Unquote
Love the quotation marks. At first I thought they were added by a sharpie-wielding theater employee, but I'm pretty sure they're intentional.

Based On A True Story

The Second Poster
This second poster is full of lengthy excerpts from NY Times, Vanity Fair and New York articles on the JT Leroy phenomenon, as well as the eventual exposure of the hoax. The last article in the poster was written only two weeks ago.

I have a few more close-up photos in this Flickr set. Enjoy.

(Although JT Leroy information is everywhere, the best coverage came from Gawker [Gawker posts on JT Leroy] and GalleyCat.)

I saw the trailer last night before Night Watch and it also begins with text saying "In October 2006 an article revealed that JT LeRoy may not exist." And then it says "Based on the book by JT LeRoy." It was awesome.
