TLASILA Blog: A forum for all things related (and of interest) to the experimental collective To Live and Shave in L.A. Founded by Tom Smith in May 1990, TLASILA is antithesis, energized at the juncture of aesthetic revulsion. Genre is obsolete.
My favorite of Mr. Hoffman's film roles was
that of Phil Parma, the nurse who cares for the ailing Earl Partridge
(Jason Robards, Jr.) in Paul Thomas Anderson's sprawling 1999 feature Magnolia. Rigorous restraint.
