Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967 - 2014)

I first noticed Hoffman in 1997's "Boogie Nights." Any time any artist makes you sit up and think/cringe, "Dear god, I've been EXACTLY like that"... you remember. He went on to more mainstream movies and greater acclaim, but I will always remember his utterly emotionally naked "Scotty." Nothing he did after that ever moved me as much; but after "Boogie Nights," I always paid attention whenever I saw that he was in a cast.
