A deeper, more thoughtful film than 'Capote'. While Philip Seymour Hoffman's Oscar-winning turn was a fine impersonation, Tobey Jones' performance is more intimate, allowing viewers to feel Capote's motivations and emotions. We fully comprehend how Capote endeared himself to the residents of this Midwestern town, and fully understand the reasons behind Truman's sorrow toward Perry's death.
First, the inevitable: Toby Jones is Capote, PSH is PSH doing Capote. I prefer Infamous, overall. The greater artistry and atmosphere - as if the people are characters in a work by Capote - draws out interesting performances and human truths. Bullock's statement at the end about Harper Lee's artistry is kind of heartbreaking: "We want everything you have, and we want it as fast as you can turn it out."
