PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN

hoffman.At Avidly, I wrote a tribute to my favorite actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and how good he was at talking on the phone in movies.

“But it’s also not wrong to think back on these scenes and to wonder what they reveal of this man’s art, why these moments in particular can represent his work so fully even in their constraint. As we are beginning to reckon with the distance we now feel from an actor who had seemed so intimately communicative with us as viewers of film, we should ask why he was so reliably able to reach us when he was alive.”
