Phillip Seymour Hoffman, a farewell


It’s very rare that an actor turns up that does what Hoffman did. He was a genius, he had a humanity that you could read in his face, he expressed an intelligence and humour that reassured you that not everybody in the world was insane. Without wanting to go on and on, we just thought it would be appropriate to mark his passing here, and we join with all those who he touched in mourning his death. Rest in peace, Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
