Fans of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman were floored and saddened when the actor died of a heroin overdose in February of 2014. It inspired some to go back and review the titles from his impressive film career, which spanned from 1991 until the year he died.

Beginning as a scene-stealing character actor and ending up as a commanding presence who often carried the movies and theater productions in which he starred, no one could say that, as an actor, Hoffman was a "one trick pony."

As such, Hoffman played widely varied character types: from a gay crew member of porn films in Boogie Nights to a privileged, preppy snob in The Talented Mr. Ripley. From a secretive Catholic priest in Doubt to a lonely obscene phone caller in Happiness.

Refresh yourself with every film title from the late actor's body of work and see how a writer from Vulture ranked each with his opinions of worst to best here.
