The Documentary of Robin Williams
The documentary Remembering Robin Williams was a real touching biography of him. He passed away a few years ago. Gone too soon. I have watched the entire documentary. He was real funny and a humanitarian. It is rare to see a celebrity care about people the way he did. There is no one like him right now. He brought us joy and laughter. He especially in his drama movies gave us pure humanity that most of us much-needed. I will never forget him. We will never forget him. We will never see a special person like him, until many years later. My favorite movie of him was Hook, even if it is a children’s movie. I loved it! He was funny and a charismatic Peter Pan. A long time ago when I was a kid my parents took me to see Popeye. I loved it. But, most people didn’t like it like I did. I loved it! His brilliance as a serious and comedic actor is pure genius. He has touches our hearts and minds. He is always in our hearts. If anyone wants to be a comedian they should follow in Robin Williams footsteps. It’s like having a mentor. The only thing is that you’ll be watching his stand-up shows, and movies on TV. So, you can be the original comedian you want to be. However, this is off the subject I must tell you. Don’t forget to watch the movie Pan that is going to be out in theaters very soon worldwide. But, Robin Williams documentary was a real treat to watch. A very special show I have watched on Netflix.
