A very well acted worth while film that's very dark and depressing. The acting is top notch and well the story isn't great it's still worth at least one viewing. B

It is true that nothing much happens, but that is the point; nothing much happens in God's Pocket. The plot is really just a vehicle for character exploration, but does provide some irresistible black comedy. The real beauty of the film lies in the evocation of a particular time and place, and in the study of the characters, which is compelling in itself. This is one of Philip Seymour Hoffman's final films, and he was quietly brilliant, to the extent that I couldn't imagine the film working with anyone else in the lead. At forty-six, he was probably only halfway through his career, and it is very sad to think of all the wonderful films he was yet to make. Expand

Well this pocket is empty. The acting in the movie is really good, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro and Richard Jenkins did really good in this film.

The acting in the movie is really good, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro and Richard Jenkins did really good in this film. But the movie lacks on characters and the writing in the movie wasn't that good to be honest. I wanted to like this movie but it kind of let me down, because I thought i was going to love this movie but i didn't. Overall god's pocket is a mediocre film with good acting but a weak script. Could have been better. Expand
