Christina Hendricks on God’s Pocket, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Ken Cosgrove’s Eyepatch
The journey of God's Pocket from its Sundance debut in January to its quiet premiere last Friday has been marked with tragedy. Two weeks after a rollicking, fun interview I did with director John Slattery and stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christina Hendricks in Utah, Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment. It's hard now to watch the movie — which is Slattery's feature-film directorial debut and which opens with Hoffman's character attending a funeral — and not be struck by sadness. Still, there are plenty of moments of comedy and joy in Hoffman's performance. He plays a blue-collar South Philly barfly and petty crook who's trying to do right by his wife (Hendricks), who's just lost a son, and keeps making a mess of it — to the point where he spends much of the movie dragging around a corpse and giant slabs of meat.
