Philip Seymour Hoffman Makes His Final Exit In ‘A Most Wanted Man’
FFCC member Michelle F. Solomon reviews A Most Wanted Man, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final film prior to his death from an overdose in February. The following is an excerpt from her review.
“There are so many layers to A Most Wanted Man, but primary among them is that the movie would be Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final screen performance. Hoffman is familiar here, though he’s presented with challenges, no doubt one of the reasons Hoffman took on the role. First among them is that his character, Gunther Bachmann, is a German intelligence officer. Hoffman affects a German accent with a hint of English.”
