When Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away, film fans remember his subtle genius in his performances. Even though he has been celebrated for his later roles, the performance that resonates with me the most is his turn as the late rock journalist, Lester Bangs in Cameron Crowe’s semi-autobiographical film Almost Famous. But, with Bangs also being an victim of an overdose at the age of 33, Hoffman’s untimely demise immediately raises similarities between the two.
