“u0026quot;There will be time to murder and create.u0026quot; T.S. Eliotu0026#39;s Prufrock u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTruman Capote described murderer Perry Smith as between the u0026quot;tender and the terrible.u0026quot; Such may be said about writer/director Douglas McGrathu0026#39;s superior Infamous, a tale of Truman Capoteu0026#39;s (Toby Jones) love affair with his innovative novelization, In Cold Blood, and its protagonist,Perry Smith (Daniel Graig). The tender is Capoteu0026#39;s love of his female friends, especially Harper Lee (Sandra Bullock) and Smith (DanielCraig), and the terrible slaughter of the Kansas farm family in 1959 by Smith and friend Dick Hickock (Lee Pace).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eInevitable as accusing Toby Jones of only imitating Capote is the comparison with Philip Seymour Hoffmanu0026#39;s Oscar performance of the titular author in Capote (1955). Jonesu0026#39;s turn is more complex than Hoffmanu0026#39;s, alternating between Capoteu0026#39;s imaginative connection with the crime and his growing respect, even love, for Smith. In fact, the well-known love between the men is avoided in Capote but highlighted in Infamous.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was hooked in the first sequence, when Gwyneth Paltrow as Peggy Lee sings u0026quot;What is this thing called love?u0026quot; and breaks down in apparent awareness of her own losses. The song, perfect for the themes of the film, and the filmu0026#39;s score carry a melancholy with them that McGrath captures in Truu0026#39;s constantly frustrated search for truth and love and Leeu0026#39;s inability to pen another novel after her Pulitzer-Prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird. For that matter, Capote never completes a significant piece after that himself.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLast yearu0026#39;s Capote seemed centered on the conflict in Truman over whether or not he was exploiting Smith to get a story and then never fully engaging a campaign to free them. This yearu0026#39;s Infamous (a poor title regardless of it double artistic appropriateness) is more interested in Trumanu0026#39;s struggle to write a new kind of fiction (docudrama) and his true affection for Smith. Infamous fleshes out the story and the fabulous artist whose u0026quot;Breakfast at Tiffanyu0026#39;su0026quot; and u0026quot;In Cold Bloodu0026quot; are cultural staples of 20th century life.”
