PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN IS ALLEN
The recently deceased Philip Seymour Hoffman is Allen, a strange loner in Todd Solondz´s movie ‘Hapiness’ but also the name of one of our latest boxer styles.
Born in New York, Hoffman quickly became an income of indie cinema. ‘Hapinness’ was released in 1998 defining the term black comedy. It tells a multistory tale of sex, perversion and loneliness on a fractured family from New Jerseys, the Jordans. Hoffman took an unflattering role: Allen is frustrated for lack of a woman in his life so he makes lewd crank phone calls to women. Some critics said it was one of the creepiest characters in American cinema. Solondz won the Cannes International Critics Prize that year.
Films like ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ or ‘Magnolia’ took the actor to the next level, playing supporting roles on cult films a the end of the 90s. Hoffman consolidated his reputation as one the finest actors under the age of 40 with his turn in ‘Truman Capote’. He was awarded the Best Actor Oscar for that role in 2006.
The ALLEN is a medium navy check style that is chosen for different Boxer Union friends profiles and it is one of our best sellers in last Christmas Holidays.
