Infamous covers just enough new ground to be interesting, but it will always suffer by comparison.

even without comparisons to Capote, Infamous is not particularly good.

The film is as strangely unfocused as its title is. Several of the artistic decisions weaken the film. A good performance by Daniel Craig is perhaps the film's major asset.

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.

In the end, Infamous turns out to be the third-best movie built around the murders of the Clutter family of Holcomb, Kan., in 1959.

No matter how noble the competitor, coming in second in a contest always feels like a lesser effort.

Ultimately, as a cautionary tale about fictionalized journalism, it's a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black.

All that was painted grey in Capote becomes black-and-white here.

...does have some things going for it, beginning with Sandra Bullock's terrific portrayal of "Mockingbird" author Harper Lee...

Should have come first for it would have been a perfect example for screenwriting students to see the difference between a first draft and a finished product.

Not since Valmont followed on the heels of Dangerous Liaisons has there been such a fascinating compare/contrast double feature.

"Infamous"' powerhouse casting doesn't add much, since most of the big names -- Sigourney Weaver, Gwyneth Paltrow, Isabella Rossellini, Hope Davis, Juliet Stevenson, and director Peter Bogdanovich -- serve as little more than window dressing.

Revela-se não somente desonesto, como decepcionantemente repulsivo.

Jones looks more like the small, impish Capote than Hoffman does -- he has the nasal whine down pat -- but his performance fails to cut as deep into the complexities of the man. Neither does the movie.

Once he gets to the Midwest, the movie's arch tone becomes tiresome and, more importantly, out of place.

Even judged on its own, though, McGrath's movie feels slightly misjudged.

It can't withstand the comparisons [to Capote]. It's good, especially during its first half, just not good enough.

comes across as a soulless extended sketch

It's a movie that deserves to be considered not just in comparison to the excellent "Capote," but on its own merits, which are substantial.
