It's 2011 and I finally got around to seeing the Philip Seymour Hoffman version in "Capote" (Sony); the following weekend I saw Toby Jones' version in "Infamous." Reading the Yahoo and Rotten Tomato reviews, it does seem that more people favor the quiet, sensitized Sony Pictures version. I did too, by a long shot. Despite the amazing cast in "Infamous" including Sandra Bullock, Daniel Craig as Perry, Sigourney Weaver, Isabella Rosellini... the dialogue is weak, the visuals uneven, the violence gratuitous, and the cutting choppy. I found Toby Jones' acting grating and lacking in sympathy and nuance. I felt that "Infamous" was simply a bad picture, and the timing of its release extremely ill-timed. It almost seems as if a bunch of the Sony crew stomped off the set and decided to make their own version of it, even down to particular sequences, frames, and verbal quotations. The two films are uncannily similar in structure. Thus they must have come from the same source material . . . ??? I'd love if folks could respond to this question if they have the inside track on genesis of the two films.
