I don’t know another actor who portrayed unspoken sadness like him. that aching thousand yard stare in Paris, Texas. so sad to see him go.

loved his last role in Twin Peaks.


#5

This was a lovely scene from Twin Peaks:


#6

haven’t seen anything since episode 13 for reasons (:grimacing: so glad it’s many times more niche than GoT and nobody’s spoiled it for me as yet), but that’s my favourite scene of the season as of where I am. just pure and disarming. felt like a moment of relief not just from the darkness and absurdity within the show, but real life too.

RIP :frowning: what a dude he was


#8

Ah man, really sad. Cannot believe he was 91. RIP HDS


#9

Such a dude.

mentioned in the Twin Peaks thread, but he starred in an upcoming movie alongside David Lynch that was directed by John Carroll Lynch:

Has anyone seen this? Pretty interesting insight to the man

I adore Paris, Texas. Easily one of my favorite films if not my #1. Hopefully some cinemas will have a showing to celebrate him and his work.

May give The Straight Story another watch this week too.

Tributes following death are always really positive, but seems to be a sense with those coming in this morning that he was a super nice/friendly guy and brilliant to be around.


#17

damn, not happy about this


#18

So many great roles. His scene in the Straight Story is short, almost wordless but so powerful


#19

Really unnerves me when someone like this passes away and it’s immediately obvious that they’re completely revered but you’ve somehow failed to appreciate them while alive. Don’t think i saw a Phillip Seymour Hoffman film before he died. Have seen Stanton in…two things (Godfather II and Paris, Texas) of a 200-film career. Seems like exactly the kind of actor and subject i’d love as well. Obviously the stuff’s always there to investigate, but…
