"Despite all these artists clicking on all cylinders - or maybe, in a perverse way, because of that - Capone never really engages its audience, keeping us at arm's length even as it probes the most private recesses of a character's psyche.
To what extent Capone is biographical or autobiographical is part of its ignoble appeal. It's the rare biopic that takes a prominent figure and chooses to hone in on the period of their life furthest from what led them to prominence in the first place.
Exquisite crassness... more expressive and memorably cracked than most films that were meant to be released in 2020? (Fatal, fetal and fecal, to boot.) It is an emetic and an education: Trank's every choice is bold, assured and oftentimes bravura.
British Hardy dramatizes the guilt that American actors avoid. As the most talented and charismatic actor of the millennium, Hardy displays his gifts modestly and shrewdly: Sickly pale Capone has a carrot stuck in his face where a stogie used to be.
Not so much a beguiling biopic as it is a whirligig of go-for-broke eccentricities, Capone is about as revealing of the storied 1920s Chicago gangster as a cutscene from a bargain-bin Scarface video game. But it's as looney as a flapper on a coke binge.
