Philip Seymour Hoffman

Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman-1527808We at Video City have long been fans of the extraordinary talent of Philip Seymour Hoffman (a fact evidenced by our long-standing ‘Philip See-More Hoffman’ shelf) and are deeply saddened to hear of his passing. There is rarely a week that goes by when one of his films, be it the gently poignant Jack Goes Boating (Hoffman’s directorial debut), A Late Quartet or Happiness, doesn’t grace our Staff Picks shelf.

A beautiful actor who could at once show great vulnerability, troubled confidence, frustrated desire and an anger bubbling beneath the surface that could leap out in dangerous, burning flashes – it made him wonderful to watch.
