Philip Seymour Hoffman

Three years ago, Americans woke up to the nation's heroin crisis when one of our greatest actors died. The crisis hasn't gone away.
When PBS announced their American Masters documentary on Mike Nichols, I was relieved. Like so many admirers of his work, I grieved when he died in November of 2014.
Ever wonder what your life might have been like if you dropped out of high school? Well, for actor Michael Shannon, it put him on the path to being nominated for an Academy Award by the age of 34.
In Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche, New York (2008), Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a character who is suffering from a number of symptoms, but it soon becomes apparent that the real culprit is existence.
For more, head to the New York Times. O'Donnell told the Times that a return to the theater helped her grieve because, "It
I ran across Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley on HBO last night. It was late and had been a long day. I figured I'd watch a few minutes, wind down, then hit the sack. Of course, I couldn't take my eyes off it for the duration.
Perhaps our 50 state legislatures should look to South Africa's lead and re-examine their state statutes of limitations on rape and sexual assault.

The year 2014 in entertainment might be remembered as the year Kim Kardashian tried (and at times, succeeded) to break the
They don't give out Oscar nominations to "Hunger Games" movies, but a very easy argument could be made about Philip Seymour
At this point, it seems pretty pointless to review a new entry in The Hunger Games series.

After Philip Seymour Hoffman's death in February, Showtime stayed mum on the status of its comedy, "Happyish," in which Hoffman
Michael J. Burg whispers his wisdom conspiratorially to me across our luxurious table at the Russian Tea Room.
Over a third of the 14 films in competition at the Deauville American Film Festival this year were genre pieces -- thriller or suspense or horror -- from Ana Lily Amirpour's vampire flick A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night to the political thriller A Most Wanted Man featuring Philip Seymour Hoffman.
