A List of the Best Movies Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman

Any time you are going to talk about actors based on talent, one person who should be thrown into the discussion is Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hoffman is a classically trained theater actor, and I think that shows; his poise and versatility are amazing things to watch.

This article will discuss some of the best Philip Seymour Hoffman movies and roles up to this point in his
career.

The first movie I will discuss is a rather dark film and was released on a smaller scale, as many of his films often are. Before The Devil knows You’re Dead is a difficult film to get through, but Hoffman’s acting is nothing short of top notch.

Another great role that Phillip Seymour Hoffman played was as the villain in Mission Impossible III. This wasn’t the best film ever, but you could not ask for a better bad guy.

One movie that must be mentioned when discussing Hoffman films is Doubt. This movie stars Hoffman as a priest being questioned by a strict and evil nun, played by none other than the great Meryl Streep.

Philip Seymour Hoffman doesn’t always feel the need to play the lead role in a film and that is most apparent to me as his role of Brandt in The big Lebowski. he may not have been the star of this movie, but there is no doubt he helped to contribute to its greatness.

One other film that I feel the need to discuss is the movie that nabbed him an Academy Award for best Actor in a Lead Role, and that was of course the movie Capote. Hoffman played the part of Truman Capote as no one else could.

Hopefully there are one or more Philip Seymour Hoffman films on this list which you have not yet seen. Get familiar with this incredible actor, because he will be around for years to come.
