Critics reviews

I can’t deny that Infamous has dramaturgical strengths, whether or not it gets the facts right. Jones’s performance as Capote tends to be delivered in a monotone, yet thanks to Craig all of their scenes together are potently realized. As a statement against capital punishment, the final execution sequence is devastating. And as a portrait of Capote’s New York jet-set milieu, the movie offers loads of cruel fun, though it could have been even more critical.
