The battle of Truman Capotes, one won an Oscar and the other lived in his shadow with only months after Capote’s release. So who did it better?
Both of these films are incredible and the performances as well. Toby Jones truly lived in a shadow because his performance was magnificent in Infamous and is very little talked about it. But ultimately, Hoffman’s performance was the towering one. He got the look, voice, and heart of Capote in a masterful way
PSH was better than Jones as Capote, but as a film, for me..INFAMOUS
was better and had all around better supporting performances…
Hoffman was better, but Jones was good.
However, Bullock was much better as Harper Lee than Keener was.
Toby! That mumble-mouthed perf from Hoffman made me want to smack his face.
MVP from these collective films? Clifton Collins Jr. He’s far better than Daniel Craig, and more satisfying in his spectacular cameo, than Hoffman himself. Move your lips Seymour. I’ve seen the real Truman speak.
Honestly, I haven´t seen Infamous, but there is no way he is better than Hoffman. His is one of the best performances the oscars have awarded. Pure brilliance.
Put Toby Jones against Anthony Hopkins in a Hitchcock poll and I´d definitely give him my vote !
I was starting to write that and then I remembered the Capotes. It’s on my list to do
Philip Seymour Hoffman.
