2005/6 was a bumper year for films about the flamboyant 'In Cold Blood' author Truman Capote. 'Capote' was much lauded when it arrived on the scene in 2005 and netted Philip Seymour Hoffman an Oscar for his performance. Unfortunately for 'Infamous' despite being an excellent film it was largely overshadowed by it's Oscar-winning counterpart. Many reviewers felt that Toby Jones' performance was unfairly overlooked, with the NY Observer writing "They gave the Oscar to the wrong Truman Capote. I do not begrudge the versatile, popular Philip Seymour Hoffman his Oscar for playing the tiny terror in Capote, but he was doing an impression. In Infamous . . . a diminutive actor with a titanic talent named Toby Jones literally becomes the man himself."
