Philip Seymour Hoffman, the master

"If it's possible to be magnetic and self–effacing at the same time, that's what Hoffman's doing." —Adam Nayman, author, critic, and lecturer

Praised for his ability to make small, supporting roles memorable, Philip Seymour Hoffman has a genius way of moving from the edges of a movie to becoming the central point people remember. His versatility in adapting to roles that are complex, sympathetic, and vulnerable, made him one of the most unique actors of his generation.

Whether as a young craps player in Hard Eight, "The Mattress Man" in Punch-Drunk Love, or as a religious leader in The Master, enjoy the astounding performances of Philip Seymour Hoffman in the films of frequent collaborator, Paul Thomas Anderson.

From November 25–28, celebrate the acclaimed director in Paul Thomas Anderson: Evolution of a Master at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
