Angry at world right now.  
Absolutely gutted over the news of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death.  He was an astoundingly talented actor, and we lost him far, far too soon.

Fucking drugs.

That coupled with some of the reaction I've seen to Dylan Farrow's open letter, and seeing some actors I previously respected blow her off, has made me want to firebomb the internet.  I'd post a whole long rant, but I just don't have the energy right now.

Almost fell out of my chair last night when I read the news. So sad for his family :(

I've stayed away from reading anybody elses comments after I saw Cate Blanchetts. That was enough for me already.

Yeah, I am incredibly disappointed in her. I thought she had more integrity than that. It's hard for me to judge everyone who works with him as that is an incredibly long list of people, but you don't have to like everyone you work with. Hollywood is such an insular place, though, and I guess she didn't want to make waves. Still, disappointing.

I side eye the bigger names tbh because I think they have more of a choice who they work with.
Ngl I'm always side eyeing myself because I do like a bunch of his movies and I'm not sure what to think of myself because of that.

Yeah, I know. I feel the same way with Roman Polanski. At least with Polanski he pled guilty, so at least there's not this stupid online witch hunt in support of him. You still have to deal with him escaping justice, but he gets to die with "convicted child rapist" next to him name, and that works out all right by me.

Exactly. Since I know about all this I actually don't see his films in the theater anymore (well the only one I saw was Carnage anyway and I didn't know it was a Polanski film till afterwards).
