Do you ever notice that the most brilliant amongst us are often slaves to their own internal torment? I was shocked to hear that Philip Seymour Hoffman died yesterday, apparently by a drug overdose. Not gonna lie, when I first heard, part of me thought about how Hoffman always looked pasty and winded, and thought for sure he’d had a heart attack. But then I thought, who cares how he died, just that he did.
My favorite Hoffman movie was Capote. I remember reading “In Cold Blood” in college, and it’s like the story came to life. He WAS Truman Capote.
I hope he found his peace.
What was your favorite Philip Seymour Hoffman flick?
