Philip Seymour Hoffman: A Legend of the Screen

psmHow do you appropriately pay tribute to such greatness?

With this morning’s loss of one of the finest actors to come from any generation, let us remember that the most appropriate salute to a fallen screen legend is to preserve, respect, and share his craft.

An actor who so powerfully danced from line to line, brewing a quiet storm of character behind each role, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s mastery of acting is unrivaled.

Before we let the cause of death predicate our perception of the man, before we let our curious nature probe into an aspect of his life he never chose to show us, let’s sit back, pay our respects, and drift off into the roles, characters, and the cinematic dream he helped create with each role he shared with us.
