A couple of months ago I attended a screening for Robin Williams’ film “Angriest Man In Brooklyn”. In his infamous use of comedy and dark drama, Williams once again proved why he’s been one of my favorite actors since his days on Mork and Mindy.

Yesterday, as I heard news of his death, I quickly went to look at childhood photos in which I wore my “Mork” suspenders. I wore those suspenders until they pretty much disintegrated. I was Mork. Robin Williams was someone who I looked up to. Not only for his acting and comedy talents, but because he dealt publicly with his mental health issues.

My all time favorite Williams movie is “What Dreams May Come”. Not only does it deal with suicide, but also the grief that comes a long with it. The first time I watched it, it resonated so deeply with things that were going on in my own life. The movie, although not a blockbuster, is still a masterpiece in my eyes.

The world lost a special person.

Clutchettes, what is your favorite Robin Williams movie?

    Dead Poets Society was one of the pivotal movies of my life. I saw it again yesterday and I cried just as hard, if not harder than the first time.

    Oh captain, my captain, you will be missed. :-(

    I forgo.t about “Hook” and Popeye and The World According To Garp. “Good Morning Vietnam” Jumanji and he was heartbreaking in “Jack” The little boy in a grown man’s body. I cry when i watch that. I hurt for his family. This is how i felt when Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston and Heavy D passed. This really hurts.

    • I like “Good Morning Vietnam” too. I am a history buff. :)

      Yes, RIP Robin Williams.

    My favorite was Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin and The World According to Garp. I will miss him and was heartbroken to hear that he committed suicide.
