Philip Seymour Hoffman in Hard Eight

Only after reading Philip Baker Hall’s interview with Rolling Stone (http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/philip-baker-hall-remembers-genius-philip-seymour-hoffman-20140202), did I realise that most of the scene above was improvised. Philip Seymour Hoffman never ceases to amaze me with his brilliance. To be able to improvise this well and catch the timing right goes to show his genius. The world will surely suffer from this loss of a massive acting talent for a long time.
