I know this has nothing to do with design, decorating, or Rome/Italy, but Hoffman’s death has hit me like a ton of bricks.
PSH was truly one of the most talented actors of our generation. Even in big blockbuster tent pole movies, like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, he brought something unique to the screen.
It’s his roles in smaller/indie films that I loved. I could watch him all day as Freddie Miles in THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY. Some of the my other favorite roles were in: 25th HOUR, BOOGIE NIGHTS, DOUBT, THE MASTER, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, HAPPINESS, HARD EIGHT, MAGNOLIA, CAPOTE, and ALMOST FAMOUS.
I’m pissed. This guy was like Daniel Day Lewis. That level of talent is so rare. Stupid heroin.
