She’s Still Here...

If you know Broadway, there are a handful of names that come to mind as legends; Stephen Sondheim, Noel Coward, Tennessee Williams, Bernadette Peters, Edward Albee, Stella Adler and Hal Prince. What do all of these people have in common? Elaine Stritch. At 88, Ms. Stritch has the energy of a 25 year old onstage. It’s what she lives and breathes. In this new documentary, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, award-winning director/producer Chiemi Karasawa follows Elaine around for about a year and a half with a single camera to attempt to reveal a little more about this incomparable star.

See Elaine Stritch talk about the movie at the FREE talks at Film Society of Lincoln Center in NYC on Tuesday, February 18th

How Philip Seymour Hoffman Became The Master - His Five (or Six) Finest Performances

Submitted by Spirit of the Thing on February 2, 2014 - 3:51pm


**Reposted from September 13, 2012**
I, like many film buffs, am eagerly anticipating Paul Thomas Anderson's new opus The Master, based on L. Ron Hubbard and the beginnings of Scientology. His oeuvre is one of the most exciting set of films by a contemporary director available even though it is only comprised of five features - Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, and The Master - and a few shorts. One of the best aspects of this oeuvre is that Anderson has worked with the fine actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on four of them and that is one of the biggest reasons I am anticipating The Master. Hoffman has long been one of my favorite actors because he has always been able to make an impression on me even if his part was only a 2-minute scene as an obnoxious craps player (shaka-laka doo, shaka-laka dooby doo). I think about his performances well after leaving the theater or turning off the DVD and that is rare among contemporary actors. He is a guy who doesn't get glory roles, those meaty leading man roles that are offered to, frankly, lesser actors who may be prettier but certainly don't command the same presence. That is one of the worst things about Hollywood - face, not talent, sells. Nearly all of Hoffman's performances stand out and that is why he is one of the most exciting actors working today. That being said, I'm here to laud my five favorite performances that Philip Seymour Hoffman has committed to celluloid (or digital whatever).
