Go Well Mr Hoff­man

I actu­ally wept when I heard that this cre­ative genius had passed away in his New York apart­ment appar­ently wear­ing a pair of shorts and t shirt and a nee­dle out his arm. Phillip Sey­mour Hoff­man is/​was hands down one of my favourite actors of all time. Every movie he is in I felt you could trust and his com­mit­ment was breath­tak­ing. May it be a zany Along Came Polly moment, or a Duke spe­cial in The Boat that Rocked…The Savages.…Jack went boat­ing and of course award win­ning Capote.

Who would have thought that the two lead­ing men some years ago for best actor-​Heath Ledger and Phillip Sey­mour Hoff­man would years later be gone hav­ing trav­elled the same dark road. If you are a fan of his work you will know that for the most part his char­ac­ters were stitched together with melan­cholic tapestry.

Crazy that he was a few months away from star­ing in a com­edy about a mid­dle aged man in the pur­suit of hap­pi­ness. This pic­ture was taken at the Sun­dance Fes­ti­val in Jan­u­ary, he didn’t do any inter­views but had this por­trait taken. Rest in Peace Mr Hoff­man. X
