CutPrintFilm (previously) has created a haunting montage that includes clips from the last three films that actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman made before his untimely death in 2014. Adding to the somber mood is a beautifully stark piano piece by The Orange Project in the background.
However, before his untimely death, Hoffman wrapped production on three films, all of which were released in 2014. He starred as Mickey Scarpato in God’s Pocket, directed by Mad Men alumni John Slattery; Günther Bachmann in A Most Wanted Man, directed by Anton Corbijn; and Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games Mockingjay: Part 1, directed by Francis Lawrence . While none of the performances reach the unattainable level of The Master, they are each examples of what a talent this man truly was – acting as echoes of his greatness that reach out posthumously.
