Sad to hear the news today, probably a drug overdose. Dude was one of the best actors of his generation.

He's been in tons of movies but one of my personal favorites is Love Liza, it's about a guy whose wife commits suicide and then he gets addicted to huffing gas.

He had great range and was just such a funny guy. He played a miserable, selfish u wanna kick him in the face teen in his first movie school ties; a scary, but somehow still love able wacker/turd burglar and sad sack in Boogie Nights; a cool college English professor in 25th Hour; a fucking hilarious role in one of those terrible Ben gay stiller movies; the worlds most noted gambler in another. And that was not even 20 percent of the body of his work!

I think some of his best performances are found within his extensive work with the modern day Kubrick: PT Anderson. Just watched Punch Drunk Love. His role is small but great nonetheless. Also, The Master is brilliant.

R.I.P Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He was one of my favorite actors. I thought he went above and beyond with his acting abilities in the movies that he starred in.

Fucking heroin too, didn't even know he was a Junkie.

Quite odd though, was watching "Synecdoche, New York" again and an Analysis on "Punch-Drunk love", then the next day he was dead.

Love Liza is so good.

He was the saving grace in every mediocre to bad film he was in.

What range... dude was a goofball in Along Came Polly to a crazy cult leader in The Master.

If you are not famaliar with his work, expand your horizons and get some PS Hoffman in your life.

RIP

i wish it had been beiber or miley cyrus instead. all i'd have to do is ignore 2 weeks of bullshit beiber or miley cyrus tributes, and then in a few months i'd be enjoying the new philip seymour hoffman movie.

^ Bad taste.

Wasn't that same beat used on the last Madlib-Gibbs EP though?

^ Yeah, glad to see The Madlib throw his hat into the 'King Heroin' ring. I always love it when Jay and Otis flip the same samples. Little window into the differences of their minds.

I watched The Master last night and will definitely need to watch it again so I can really absorb it but I thought both actors were fucking great. Hoffman did a fantastic job getting his L. Ron Hubbard on. In typical Anderson fashion I was left with that 'WTF did I just watch' moment as the credits rolled. Anyone else have some thoughts on The Master?

Amazing acting on everyone's part, mindblowing cinematography. Personally I don't think it came together as nicely as Anderson's other work. Even though there's a lot of great scenes and a lot of brilliant writing, the story sort of circles around and goes nowhere very slowly. Seen it a few times and even though I love so many of the individual scenes I always feel like there's something missing

I definitely feel you there! There was one point in the film when I noticed the time then said to myself, 'This has to end soon, but there still isn't anything HAPPENING.' Like you said though, the acting was amazing as well as the cinematography.

yeah i feel that you know what though i've been trying to find a meaning or a reason for that movie and i'm playing around with a theory that it's about manhood and "coming of age" some cliche shit like that. but it seems like it's about what somebody chooses to do with their life and how that reflects upon them. like, i was wondering.... who is the "master" in that movie??? wakeem phoenix could be or it could be psh..... or is it the wife?????

Civil rational Man = Hoffman
Club wavin' and bashin' shit animal = phoenix
Evolution against higher power complex. Existential mind melt of a film.

Isn't it wonderful that there are still films that play at theatres that are utterly up for interpretation?

Rumor is.... there are numerous dream sequences in this film, just jammed and crammed all about.
Also I remember reading an article proclaiming that PT Anderson wrote the film as they were filming it. Stream of consciousness script.
