Robin Williams: You've got to be crazy. It's too late to be sane. Too late. You've got to go full-tilt bozo. 'Cause you're only given a little spark of madness, and if you lose that, you're nothing. Note, from me to you... Don't ever lose that cause it keeps you alive.

Amazing look at the legend
25 July 2018 | by Donatien3See all my reviews

Robin Williams' 2014 death shocked the world. There were a lot of questions and now enough times has passed to examine those questions.

The HBO special "Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind", isn't a morbid look at the murky details of his death, rather it's a celebration of his life and career. There's archival voice clips from Williams and tons of interviews with family and friends, including Pam Dawber (Mindy from "Mork and Mindy"), Eric Idle, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal (Williams' lifelong friend), Bobcat Goldwaithe and David Letterman (with an impressive retirement beard).

The special charts Williams' education, his breakthrough on "Happy Days" and "Mork and Mindy" (he was so energetic they had to include a fourth camera - now a sitcom staple - to keep up with him), his legendary stand-up shows, his prolific movie career and his sad final days.

There's a distinction drawn between Robin's two personalities: the manic, frentic performer which an almost compulsive need to make people laugh (outtakes during "One Hour Photo" show cracking jokes with the cast) and the quiet, private family man. While the special mentions Robin's drug use, drinking, depression and the disease that caused him to take his life, it doesn't dwell on it.

The archival footage is so comprehensive (including a hillarious clip at an 2003 awards show where Williams loses to Jack Nicholson and Daniel Day-Lewis, but steals the show anyway), that you'll rediscover old Williams films you'd forgotten about.

A must-watch for Williams' fans.
