Even the adolescent who racially abuses a colleague on the building site is given scenes that suggest he is not such a bad kid at heart. God's Pocket is dour in places. It's a downbeat yarn about mixed-up folk making a mess of their lives. Like Shelburn's columns, it is repetitive and sometimes mawkish.
These, though, seem minor quibbles when set against the excellence of the cast. Slattery provides such a feast of acting that you hardly notice the creaks in the storytelling. This isn't Hoffman's final screen performance he is also in A Most Wanted Man and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, for which part of his performance was digitally recreated following his death but it is one of the last occasions on which one of the great character actors of recent times can be seen working at full throttle.

Are we all just buying into the myth of the hard-working, free-wheeling Joe? Perhaps, but there's plenty in that caricature to sustain this film. Mickey's quest to bury Leon takes him around a rogue's gallery of local faces. The funeral director who spills his beer on a corpse "It's OK.
It's an Irish funeral" , Mickey's partner in crime John Turturro , who can only cut up their stolen meat when the power's not out. Everyone's fighting to live in a world that hates them. God's Pocket has no subtlety. Those who found The Paperboy too rich a brew may well turn their nose up at its brashness. But - through the Irish jokes, the Italian jokes, the corpse as comedy jokes - it has a dark heart that stays beating. No-one here is good, no-one will escape, no-one deserves to.
