Three Top Picks On Robin Williams’ Films

Robin Williams was a famous comedian of his time. We grow up watching his films every Friday night over roasted marshmallows, popcorns, sparkling sodas, and lots and lots of junk foods! Well, I’m not going to talk about our family time in this article; instead, this will be a tribute to the actor that inspired me through his work of art, notwithstanding his life behind the tinsel town and his famous personality that eventually ended his life in 2014.

Robin Williams started to make movies in 1977 but his famous role in Good Morning, Vietnam as a radio announcer catapulted his success both in films and television. His comical acting skills and his renowned voice variations are his trademarks in Hollywood. I never really watched all of his movies, only the recent and popular ones, but reviewing his filmography over the internet, he starred in almost all variety of movie genre – suspense thriller, family themed, animation, musical, fantasy, futuristic, war, love story, and many more. He also appeared in many television shows and sitcoms like Mork and Mindy and The Crazy Ones.

My Favorite Picks

I like to watch Robin Williams in a movie that offers inspiration and laden with words to live by quotes. His films are always a good-feel movie for me where it gives me some push to work on my life whenever I feel down and hopeless. Below are my top three choices.

  1.    Dead Poets Society – he played as an English teacher in this film, and he encouraged a group of young boys to love poetry and live life outside the box. Following your dream and live life following what you believe is your destiny was his principle. The school administration had noticed his eccentric teaching skills and the effect he has on his students, especially when one committed suicide because of conflict between the child’s passion and his parents’ dream.
  2.    Patch Adams – The movie was a life story of a suicidal person who voluntarily committed himself in a mental institution to find help. His stay and experience prompted him to go to medical school and become a doctor to change the relationship between the doctor and the patient to effective treatments and cure. The film had psychological bearings in it when Patch Adams lost the love of his life, and he also lost hope in his dreams and ambition. Nonetheless, the many lives he cared for helped him in this toughest time.
  3.    The Bird Cage – A hilarious yet inspiring movie between a gay couple and their son who understands their present situation. As their son is planning to get married and will be introducing his fiancée and parents to them, the crisis emerged as the girl’s parents are strict and upholds morality issue to the core. This film speaks about acceptance in any family structure and how parents should provide love and care to their child.

Dementia and Suicide

When Robin Williams committed suicide, everyone thought that he has clinical depression. That put a significant marked on the relationship of stardom, being funny as an escape from the actual internal feelings to a feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. However, Williams’ widow corrected and strongly believed that he did not die of depression. This was supported by an autopsy report that came in several weeks later, and it was found out that the loved actor has early signs of dementia. Robin Williams was already diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease early on and was showing signs of the condition. As for dementia, his wife confessed that there were some significant manifestations too and if he had not committed suicide, the doctors are giving him three years of functional life before sinking into the complications of full-blown dementia.

To some people, taking one’s own life is a mortal sin. In this case, it can be a rationalization that the actor made a courageous step and it’s an act of love to spare his family from suffering with him. For whatever reasons, and not judging his actions, the man has made lasting impressions to his millions of fans.
