Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lester Bangs: Being Uncool
Leave a comment
Philip Seymour Hoffman played legendary rock critic Lester Bangs in the classic film Almost Famous (2000), written & directed by Cameron Crowe. This video is a compilation of Hoffman’s scenes with William (Patrick Fugit), a stand-in for Crowe, who became a music critic for Rolling Stone when he was 15. These scenes are searing and true. If you’re uncool, you’ll understand.
