A Tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman

Crafted by one Caleb Slain, this is a wonderful mosaic of Hoffman’s work. My favorite performances had to have been those given in Charlie Wilson’s War, The Master, Mission Impossible III (in which he definitely plays against type, and to great effect), Doubt, and Synechdoche, New York. (His Oscar-winning performance as Truman Capote goes without saying.)

See if you agree with me that there are a couple of overwrought turns, particularly in Patch Adams and Almost Famous.

Warning: there are many many uses of the eff word. Many many.

  1. This may seem harsh. And PSH was a brilliant actor. And I really pray that he rests in peace. But when I think of him I will always think of this performance, which will never make the tribute videos.

  2. I remember really hoping that his performance was based on research and not personal experience.
