i'll preface it with what i wrote in my journal this evening:
it was sad to me not only because he was one of the best actors around these days and i mourn that he’ll never again work with p.t. anderson, but because i figured he was better than this. he seemed smarter and classier. i wrote on facebook that i expected to be seeing him get a “lifetime achievement” award at the oscars in 40 years or something.
