Someday, you will look at him, hating him with every fiber of your being, wishing that he would die the most violent death possible. It will pass.

Jack White, We’re Going To Be Friends

This fantastic and moving tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman by Caleb Slain features over 40 of Hoffman’s films.

At 17:22 the video uses a clip from a 2010 interview with Ross Reynolds of NPR affiliate KUOW in which Hoffman says:

People need each other and that actual interaction or relationship or friendship or romantic love affair, all the different ways relationships take form—is one of the hardest things we do in our lives. It’s one of the biggest risks we’ll take in our lives… If you say ‘yes’ to someone, ‘I will,’ [you] are also saying, ‘I will be hurt by you.’ Because you can’t have relationships if you’re not willing to be disappointed and hurt by that person. It’s almost impossible. And you have to be able to enter the world and realize that the richness of life is all the good and joy and thrill of it, but also all the disappointment, hurt, and heartache of it—and that all of that is what’s great.

Hoffman spoke to Terry in 1999 and 2008. We play parts of both interviews in our tribute to him.
