Quotable Quote:
“It’s hard getting inside this guy for a lot of different reasons. It’s like Whac-a-Mole. Certain moments make sense, then they don’t, then others do, then they don’t anymore. All of a sudden you’ve lost what you found—you thought you knew what that moment in a scene was about, and then you don’t anymore. And then you do.” —Hoffman in an interview with The New York Times, 3/12
