Infamous

Critics Consensus

Though comparisons with last year's Capote may be inevitable, Infamous takes a different angle in its depiction of the author, and stands up well enough on its own.

Audience Reviews for Infamous

    Really good. Really well done. Really moving...Too many people compared this movie to Phillip Seymour Hoffman's movie. Not really fair, because it is taken from a different viewpoint entirely. Toby Jones is more convincing as Truman than Hoffman (and I am a very big fan of Hoffman). By the end of this movie, I was left with a heavy heart for Truman...

    Toby Jones is truly great here, even though overshadowed by Philip Seymour Hoffman's fantastic performance in the far superior Capote (the comparison is inevitable), but this film suffers from many terrible documentary-like statements that explain what we can easily see.

    Infamous is a more natural portrayal of Truman Capote than "Capote-2005" Along with Sigourney Weaver, Gwyneth Paltrow make a brief appearance. Sandra Bollock plays Nelle Harper Lee to a tee. I really enjoyed her understated homey charm. Yes Daniel Craig plays the murder and love interest to Capote. The movie plays with the level of artistic license in Capote's work and I'm sure Plimpton really took some artistic license with the screenplay. Mcgrath really does capture the sense of Capote's giving his life for his art.

    I watched this movie for a lark, but by the end of the film I was left awestruck. The story of Truman Capote can be funny,amusing, and simply heartbreaking. An openly gay man isn't common during his day, but the little man didn't let that stop him from conquering everything he set his mind to. One of these was to determine the actual events of the murder of a family, which leads him to interview the two suspects, one of which is played by Daniel Craig. The rest of the film is a pleasure to watch over and over again,and the ending will jolt and break your heart. Watch it. You won't regret it.
