A Philip Seymour Hoffman retrospective is coming to the Museum of the Moving Image

It's hard to believe that Philip Seymour Hoffman is two years gone—he's still at work in my mind. When I run across Boogie Nights or Synecdoche, New York, there's no way I can think of him as anything but alive. Astoria's Museum of the Moving Image will be celebrating Hoffman's sizable legacy with a selective series, "The Master," running September 16 through October 2. Per the museum's website, screenings will be accompanied by "guest appearances, to be announced, and clips from his other films, to showcase his astonishing versatility." A complete list of titles has yet to be announced, but so far the picks are strong: Jack Goes Boating, The Master, The Savages, Boogie Nights, Almost Famous, Capote, Doubt, Happiness, Synecdoche, New York, Owning Mahowny, Magnolia, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, 25th Hour, The Talented Mr. Ripley, A Most Wanted Man. Those are pretty much the ones we'd choose—don't miss Owning Mahowny, a terrific portrayal of gambling addiction and, unwittingly, the most heartbreaking performance of Hoffman's career.
