Maybe you won’t cry while watching this 20 minute long memorial clip of the best moments of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s expansive film career. But you’ll certainly be left with a heavy heart at the illimitable artist the world has lost. From his lighter, more comedic roles in “Almost Famous” and “Flawless,” to his severe and ascetic ones in “The Master” and “Doubt,” the wide-ranging talent he shared during his 22-year-long career is on full display.

Second chances are complicated, because we all want to be one of those magnanimous, forgiving souls who write inspiring essays for O magazine, but at the same time, no one wants to be a gullible doormat. There’s a balance between forgiveness and foolishness; the trick is learning to walk the tight rope. Sometimes second chances are in order, and sometimes, in the cases of hipster bars or douche-y exes, it’s best to just cut your losses and move on. Here are 15 things that (almost) always deserve a second chance, and 10 things that strike out after one. Keep reading »
