Philip Seymour Hoffman: What was his greatest performance? [Poll]
Given the depth and breadth of the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s body of work, it’s difficult to even narrow down his top performances, let alone single out the best one. Would it be his Oscar-winning turn as “In Cold Blood” author Truman Capote in “Capote”?
His mesmerizing portrayal of the charismatic cult leader Lancaster Dodd in “The Master”? His tragicomic role as a neurotic college professor reuniting with his estranged sister and ailing father in “The Savages”? His surprisingly tender turn as a nurse caring for a cancer-stricken TV producer in “Magnolia?”
Or perhaps his potrayal of an executive-turned-jewel-thief in Sidney Lumet’s “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead”?
What do you think was Hoffman’s most memorable performance? Cast your vote in the poll below.
