Godwinning With Armond

Here's Armond White in New York Press, reviewing "Infamous":

"The difference between Infamous and last year’s Capote is the difference between feeling and sophistication. Hoffman and his writer, director team Dan Futterman and Bennett Miller took pride in loathing Capote (a subtle, culturally accepted homophobia). They built their bad-art, Oscar-nominated reputations on Capote’s dead body while sneering that Capote had built his literary reputation on the deaths of Smith, Hickok and the Clutter family. It was an arrogant indie attempt at seeming superior to an artist of an earlier era. (There are Hitler biopics more compassionate than Capote.)"
Armond hasn't quite been bringing the crazy lately like he used to. Perhaps the new editors aren't giving him space to breathe?

Did you see it yet? and if so, are you saying you did or did not like it?

Wow....that's some review. I was just going to post about the unecessary number of Copote films coming out.
