What a List of Philip Seymour Hoffman's 10 Best Movies

This is, unfortunately, worth republishing after Philip Seymour Hoffman's tragic death on Super Bowl Sunday. His output equals that of an actor much older than his too-young 46 years. This is a list I originally published on April 20, 2009.

He's too good of an actor to pick his "best performances," so here are his best movies:

10. Red Dragon, 2002
09. Along Came Polly, 2004
08. Capote, 2005 (A favorite author, a disappointing movie, a great performance by PSH)
07. Magnolia, 1999
06. The Talented Mr. Ripley, 1999
05. Boogie Nights, 1997
04. Punch-Drunk Love, 2002
03. Almost Famous, 2000
02. 25th Hour, 2002
01. The Big Lebowski, 1998

Honorable mention of the one PSH movie I haven't seen but want to see: Empire Falls, 2005
