God's Pocket Regie John Slattery
It’s hard to gauge what attracted the Mad Men star and occasional director to Pete Dexter’s 1983 source novel, aside from perhaps the obvious period familiarity. This is a film infatuated with its own grim realism, yet its attitude towards working-class life feels entirely unsympathetic.

Though it looks and moves like one of Lumet’s films from the 1970s or ‘80s, God’s Pocket lacks the liberal self-righteousness that defined much of the director’s work; in its pessimism, it more closely resembles later effortsBefore The Devil Knows You’re Dead (which also starred Hoffman) and the severely underrated Find Me Guilty.

The film is neither particularly literary (despite occasional florid voiceover from a character who’s a writer) nor especially cinematic, and it doesn’t fully work as a stand-alone narrative. What it offers, in spades, is a precise, evocative sense of time and place, deftly suggesting a shared history among the colorful denizens of a vividly realized milieu.
