The Loss of a Legend

A little less than a week ago tragedy struck in the film world

when one of the greatest actors of our time, Philip Seymour Hoffman, passed away.

Some of our favorite movies in the whole world are the ones in which PSH held significant roles in and it’s hard to imagine not being able to see him in any more movies as the years go on. He had so much left to offer and it’s difficult to grasp that his demise was constructed by his own demons but if his death can teach us anything it is that sometimes things are not always so black and white.

Everything Philip Seymour Hoffman graced the screen in was gold. From Almost Famous to Capote, Hoffman brought characters to life that not only touched our hearts but also called our minds to attention with his thoughtful and truthful depictions of people who we could relate to, whether we had seen similar aspects in our friends or in within ourselves.

We have collected a few of our favorites stills from PSH’s best films to commemorate his life and his work.
