ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Another year, another movie about Truman Capote. However, despite covering much the same ground as last year's Capote, Douglas McGrath's Infamous doesn't feel like a remake. The events are the same, but the tone and perspective are different. Capote was at times cool and antiseptic, but Infamous is warmer and more emotionally satisfying. The deep-rooted cynicism that characterized Capote isn't missing here, but it has been muted. It's fair to argue that, while Capote may have the better lead acting performance, Infamous may be more accessible...It's the differences in approach that makes both movies worth watching on their own terms. Capote is the more intellectual of the two films; Infamous is the more emotional. They exist to complement, not eclipse, one another.

Review Philip Seymour Hoffman played Truman Capote and won an Oscar for it. Just what kind of prize are they going to have to invent to reward English actor Toby Jones? Hoffman was great, no doubt about it, but until you've seen Jones in Douglas McGrath's Infamous, you haven't seen Truman Capote - unless you happen to catch the real deal on an ancient Dick Cavett rerun...a triumph for McGrath, Jones, and the rest of the large and talented cast. This is simply a terrific movie, a marvelous re-creation of an era and an homage to a brilliant artist - however much of a handful he may have been. Capote received many accolades; Infamous deserves many more.
