    for the first time, and Seymour was very good in it, but the movie was terrible.  It is very strange that he has died after watching the movie last night. It is strange because in the movie Seymour talks about heroin.  Maybe he was on heroin when he made the movie.

      I saw an interview where he said after 23 yrs of being sober, he was struggling with an addiction to heroin.  Apparently he did go to rehab but then relapsed. This is what happened to that young actor who died of a drug overdoses, that young actor/singer from the show, Glee.

        We lose too many to addictions... PSH made you forget he was an actor - he pulled you into the character... I only know a few people who can do that and make me believe I am an observer to something happening around me, rather than watching a movie.  

        What a damn shame that this monster called addiction seems to win no matter how up front its victims are and what help they seek.  Just horrible for loved ones left behind...
