WASHINGTON – Tortured. Talented. Tragic.

The range of roles Philip Seymour Hoffman played was nothing short of incredible.

A private funeral service will be held today for the 46-year-old actor, who died of a heroin overdose Sunday in his Manhattan apartment, ending a decades-long battle against addiction and inner demons.

While the behavior can’t be condoned, it’s important we remember the great work of a true artist.

This Sunday, Rhino Bar in Georgetown will host a movie marathon of some of his best work.

Until then, we’re ranking his favorite Philip Seymour Hoffman performances.

Check out the photo gallery to the right for the list.
