God's Pocket

God's Pocket ★★★½

Character driven and actor driven and that's the reason to recommend this, beyond the obvious curiosity of it being one of Philip Seymour Hoffman's last major roles. Based on the first novel of Pete Dexter, who also wrote The Paperboy and Paris Trout, it's a heady and uncompromising portrait of small town corruption in the seventies.
