The film's strongest performance, rather surprisingly, is by that soon to be Bond, Daniel Craig as Perry Smith.

A scene where Jones' Truman beats Jeff Daniels' crime investigator Alvin Dewey at arm-wrestling, as he supposedly beat Bogart, is in itself almost worth the price of a ticket to Infamous.

A film riddled with flaws that culminate in a disarmingly and surprisingly moving way.

The diminutive Jones was born to play Capote and his inimitable interpretation of the writer is every bit as good as Hoffman's. Unfortunately the film contains an all-star cast of rare anaemia.

There's a breeziness to the storytelling, one that delights in the tale rather than succumbing to its gravity-but that also works against it.

The other-and possibly greater-Capote pic about the geneiss of In Cold Blood

This worthy second biopic of Truman Capote starts not with a bloodbath, but a cocktail.

Toby Jones' uncanny portrayal of the short, effeminate writer with the funny voice, gives the film its credibility and compassion.

Poor Toby Jones. In any other year, his work as Truman Capote would be in immediate awards contention.

With dyed hair and tattoos, Craig nails the incredible complexity of a man who juggles gentleness with violence. The relationship between Capote and Perry is overtly moving and there was a big lump in my throat as the final chapters played out.

Why not accept Sandra Bullock as Harper Lee? As it turns out, she's quietly terrific. Most of the supporting actors are.

Infamous doesn't feel like a remake. While it covers the same ground, the pitch is completely different. Where Capote was cool, distant and even antiseptic, Infamous is warmer and more emotionally fulfilling.

Una aproximación más bien superficial y declamatoria a Truman Capote y su investigación previa a A Sangre Fría. En comparación, la versión de 2005 sale mucho mejor parada.

In a solid, unshowy turn by Bullock, a very underrated actress, as Harper Lee (plainly a co-creator of the landmark book), and you have a compellingly watchable portrait of the artist as an emotional cripple. Not to be missed.

To recreate the gossipy Manhattan arena that Capote navigated with such ease and documented with such malice, you need dialogue that rings like scatter-shot and the film's script, written by its director Douglas McGrath, doesn't have it.

Revela-se não somente desonesto, como decepcionantemente repulsivo.
