Though Phillip Seymour Hoffman's life ended far too soon, his work lives on in some of the greatest roles ever played. In P.S. Hoffman, a new and compelling tribute to the actor, Caleb Slain highlights Hoffman's entire body of work, from the magnificent Capote to some of his more forgotten roles (Along Came Polly, anyone?).

Slain describes his long journey making the video:

200 hours of work went into breaking down 47 of Hoffman's films. Compiling his legacy has been one of the most challenging experiences I've ever faced as an editor, and yet indescribably rewarding. I can assure you that after 22 years on screen and nearly fifty films, we now look at the work of an actor who never had a single dishonest moment on camera. I know because I've seen them all. Please take a breather and raise your glasses to one of our greatest.

P.S. Hoffman includes scenes from all of the following:
