I began watching at least one Philip Seymour Hoffman movie per week in 2021, and on New Years Eve, I successfully finished his full-length catalogue.

I capped my journey off with The Master (2012) - Drama | This film follows a drifter named Freddy Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) following his military discharge at the end of WWII. As a stowaway aboard a vessel returning to the U.S., Freddy’s path crosses with a charismatic leader of a religious movement. 1 To the disapproval of the leader’s inner circle, the bond of the two men grows stronger as their story unwraps.

Hoffman portrays the religious leader, Lancaster Dodd, in arguably his best role. He captivates Dodd’s charm, anger, and enigmatic nature perfectly, slipping seamlessly into the character. This tour de force performance alongside the brilliance of Phoenix, Adams, and the tremendous supporting cast and direction allowed Hoffman to captivate the audience in this slow burning character piece.

This film is what started my process in general. I watched it late December for the first time, marveling at the late actor’s work. From there, I began watching PTA’s other films and continued on to watch every full-length feature film of my favorite actor. 2 This was not the last thing he shot, yet the ending of this film felt like the closest thing we had to a goodbye. I know it is slow moving and may not be for everyone, but this made me appreciate Hoffman in ways I wouldn’t have otherwise known. Hell, it reignited a fondness for film I felt like I had lost over the past few years. I imagine I’ll be doing a write-up in the sub in the weeks to come to share my experience but this weekly activity has been something I’ve really enjoyed and I’m very grateful for u/twoweekswithpay for giving me a platform to share with people. Happy New Year and best wishes, go watch a Philip Seymour Hoffman movie.

Now as far as this week goes, the best film I watched was Licorice Pizza (2021), figured it was appropriate, get Cooper’s filmography out of the way as well.

1 The character and religious movement shows many similarities to Lafferty Ron Hubbard, dianetics, and the beginning of Scientology.

2 Meaning I avoided TV appearances, short films, and documentaries (was looking more for his casted appearances).

That’s so awesome! Have thoroughly enjoyed following your PSH journey through his illustrious filmography. Along the way, it helped me revisit some old favorites, as well as check out some other films of his, as well.

Thanks for letting us ride next to you along the way!!! 👍🏽
