Philip Seymour Hoffman ... I have trouble keeping up with all his films. No matter what movie he's in, he always finds a way to be interesting. Here are a few favorites: Cold Mountain, Moneyball, Capote, The Ides of March, The Talented Mr. Ripley, & Nobody's Fool. A few I haven't seen, but plan to: The Savages, Jack Goes Boating, State and Main, Synecdoche, New York, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. I hear Philip's the latest to jump on The Hunger Games bandwagon.
