In one of the great cinematic deja vus of recent years, this Truman Capote biopic was overshadowed by Capote (for which Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Oscar).
While Capote may have had the edge, Infamous deserves a second look. For starters, Bullock gives Catherine Keener a run for her money as Mockingbird author Harper Lee, and Daniel Craig is icily charismatic as cold-blooded killer Perry Smith. What it really lacks though is Hoffman, and the subtlety of his performance. Hollywood's Sweetheart? She may have been more richly rewarded if she'd have appeared in Capote.
