Yesterday we lamented the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Today we celebrate his life.

In an attempt to pay homage to one of the most versatile and transcendent actors of his (or any other) generation, Movie Mezzanine’s Jack Anderson has put together a video tribute. While there’s no adequate way to fully articulate just how much Hoffman meant to the arts (cinema, theater, etc), we hope what follows reminds people — if only for a brief moment — of the remarkable talent we lost yesterday.

Philip Seymour Hoffman may no longer inhabit the same space we do, but he will forever live on in our hearts, and in the movies. From Boogie Nights to Almost Famous to Capote to The Master, thank you Mr. Hoffman for immersing us in every unique character you masterfully played throughout your storied and successful career. You will not be forgotten. Enjoy the video everyone.
