Re: Catching Fire

From something I wrote this past Sunday:

Philip Seymour Hoffman's performance for me was probably the highlight of Catching Fire. He played it so that, if you knew the story, you could see the wheels moving behind his eyes - the moves and counter-moves, and then the check and mate. He simultaneously played it so that if you did not know the story, you might never see a thing.

The performance was understated... yet simultaneously a tour-de-force.

RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.
