PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN: AN ACTOR’S ACTOR
Double Feature!
PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE / JACK GOES BOATING
PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE
2002, Sony Repertory, 95 min, USA, Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson

Adam Sandler gives one of the strongest, most nuanced performances of his career in his Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Barry, the lonely, rage-filled owner of a novelty plunger company courted by shy, fellow troubled soul Lena (Emily Watson). Both beautifully romantic and tensely thrilling, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is a surreal fever dream following Barry and Lena’s whirlwind love story as they battle a wide array of threats to their relationship, ranging from a violent phone-sex hotline “supervisor” (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to their own temperaments. Anderson won the Best Director award at Cannes in 2002 for his highly inventive, aesthetically gorgeous portrait of innocent love contrasted against a world of corruption.


JACK GOES BOATING
2010, Anchor Bay, 89 min, USA, Dir: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Philip Seymour Hoffman makes his directorial debut with this insightful romantic drama. Awkward New York City limo driver Hoffman grows closer to Brooklyn funeral home worker Amy Ryan while the couple who introduced them, John Ortiz and Daphne Rubin-Vega, begin to struggle with their own marriage. Adapted from the acclaimed Off-Broadway play (which starred all of these actors except Ryan), this charmingly low-key indie boasts superb performances and an eye for telling details.


Screening formats: 35mm (PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE) and DCP (JACK GOES BOATING)
