It’s been nearly six months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and yet his presence is still heavily felt throughout Hollywood. In addition to a lengthy and acclaimed filmography, the Academy Award winner kept up a busy work schedule until the time of his death. He had three films slated for 2014 release: John Slattery’s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and A Most Wanted Man. With the latter hitting theaters today, we thought we’d give you a look every PSH film currently available for your streaming pleasure. Whether as cynical music writer Lester Bangs in Almost Famous or hopelessly lonely boom mic operator Scott J. in Boogie Nights, Hoffman managed to steal the scene in each one of his films. If you have a Netflix account, log in and get caught up on some of the greatest performances in the last 20 years.

The Master (2012)
