Someone passed me while I was just starting my run this morning and I made it my mission to catch up to her and pass her. It felt great to be able to do so but I kinda felt like an ass…
No, I did not shout out any words of encouragement.

David Edelstein reviews A Most Wanted Man, starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman: 

Part of me wishes that Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final lead performance, in A Most Wanted Man, wasn’t very good. I know that sounds perverse. But if he’d been flailing as an actor at the end, it would make his loss easier to bear from an artistic—if not a human—perspective. The thing is, though, the actor we see in this movie is at his absolute peak. This might even be my favorite Hoffman performance of all, damn it. 

 

I have to see this movie! For both the actor and director.
