9) Hottest Articles on BWW from Sunday, Feb. 2 2010 Flashback - InDepth InterView: Philip Seymour Hoffman
by Pat Cerasaro - February 02, 2014

This morning was marked with the tragic news of the passing of one of American acting's most vivid, varied and commited stage and screen performers, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and we mark his passing with my 2010 InDepth InterView conducted around the the time of the release of his first and only feature film as both director and star, JACK GOES BOATING. On a personal note, MAGNOLIA remains my favorite film and his tremendous turn within it as a put-upon home nurse dealing with death, dogs, and a Biblical plague of frogs falling from the sky (no, really) is masterful and unforgettable - Hoffman's description of the meta-musical film an 'an opera' in not only its incorporation of music into the plot and the outsized emotions of its characters but also the scope of the Paul Thomas Anderson project itself is an exquisitely erudite example of the perceptive nature Hoffman always afforded, whether onscreen or onstage in performance or in real life. Nevertheless, Hoffman's five films with Anderson alone are among the finest legacy a modern film actor could ask for, if not more: HARD EIGHT, BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA, PUNCH DRUNK LOVE and THE MASTER; not to mention his Academy Award-winning turn in CAPOTE, as well. A titanic talent that will be missed for many decades to come - Hoffman really was the master, indeed. (more...)
