[BearPit] Philip Seymour Hoffman: “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead”

Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead was one of my favorite films of 2007.  However, I have to use the term “favorite” loosely as this film is something you wouldn’t want to relax to while munching on some popcorn.  Its brutal and nihilistic depiction of the darkest side of humanity may not be everyone’s cup of tea.  However, this is tragic drama at its finest that even William Shakespeare would be proud of.

More importantly, Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman does it doggy-style with the sexy Marisa Tomei (her presence in the movie almost ungayed me).  And even more importantly, we get to see him shirtless and an armpit that I would love to lay my head on.

80th Annual Academy Awards: Philip Seymour Hoffman Calls In His Winners

Film industry insiders are very sure that No Country For Old Men will win Best Picture.  Not that I disagree with their expertise, but I would only agree with them if There Will Be Blood was not nominated.  As much as I love the Coens (I mean, “Barton Fink,” “Raising Arizona,” “The Big Lebowski,” come on!*), and as much I would love to see them win a Best Picture award, “There Will Be Blood” was just a great and powerful movie.  Everything about that film was just memorable: the Kubrickian-inspired score, haunting cinematography, clinically-perfect direction, and unrivaled acting.  One could argue that “No Country For Old Men” possess the same (minus the score), including the themes of greed, revenge, and evil.  Anyway, I’ll be watching it tonight and will hope against hope that “There Will Be Blood” wins Best Picture.  Why do I care?  It’s just a popularity contest, ain’t it?

Anyway, here’s one of the nominees, Philip Seymour Hoffman, from a disturbing drama/comedy called Happiness.  As an added note, another great film of 2007 was Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead.  Not only was it a good film, but we get to see Mr. Hoffman doing Marisa Tomei, doggie-style.  It then ends with a sex-weary but glowing Hoffman, revealing his wonderful right armpit.  Oh yes, There Will Be Screenshots…


* Not to mention those Coen movies starred the ever woofy John Goodman
