The recently deceased Philip Seymour Hoffman’s legacy as a phenomenal actor was well earned across a number of disparate roles-I even love his obnoxious performance in the critically panned Along Came Polly-and in 2006’s Academy Awards, he received an Oscar for portrayal of the eponymous character in Capote. I can’t say Hoffman ever gave a bad performance, because I’ve never seen one, but in 1999’s Flawless, directed by Joel Schumacher, he gave his least convincing. The writing and the direction let him down in his depiction of a drag queen helping Robert De Niro’s character with speech therapy.
