Seriously, can you think of a bad performance in the guy's career? Even the paycheck Hollywood roles ("Mission: Impossible III") were invested with the same commitment and intensity he brought to small and/or indie movie roles. So sad for us as fans of his work and his family (three small children) deprived of a father. :(

I think he was the best actor alive. You'd think this would be the standard definition of acting, but Hoffman was a different person in every movie he was in. Watch Boogie Nights, then Before the Devil Knows You're Dead and you'd swear that he doubled his height just by the way he carried himself. This was an absolute shock to hear.
+1. this is very interesting.
