The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Infamous gives you the unique opportunity to see how two sets of filmmakers can take exactly the same story, make extremely tough though different choices in emphasis and tone and achieve brilliant movies.
L.A. Weekly - Scott Foundas
Infamous is the better Capote film, yes, but also the less easily digestible one, the more eccentric one and -- yes -- the gayer one.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
"Capote" is the more intellectual of the two films; Infamous is the more emotional. They exist to complement, not eclipse, one another.
The A.V. Club - Tasha Robinson
Ultimately, the problem with Infamous isn't that it revisits Capote's turf--it's that it does the same things well, and leaves the same unsatisfying holes.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
Neither movie (Capote/Infamous) gives you the whole picture, but it's fun to see them both and rearrange the pieces in your head.
