HBO’s Steven Soderbergh-helmed Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” debuted Sunday night at 9 p.m. with Michael Douglas earning strong reviews in the title role and Matt Damon playing boy toy Scott Thorson.

The film has inspired a host of articles on the two. Thorson, whose memoir the movie is based on, is in jail and was profiled about two weeks ago in the New York Times. Read the story here.

And USA Today just ran a strong assessment of the singer’s life by interviewing several people who knew him.

Liberace died of AIDS in 1987.
