Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The passing of Robin Williams hit me hard. Obviously I didn’t know him personally but his films and his comedy were cornerstones across my life. His genius is very much missed. This documentary takes words from the man himself along new interviews of friends, Comedians and family along with a healthy dose of film from his career and, most interestingly, rarely seen behind the scenes footage. It’s fascinating stuff and gives you a look at just what drove him both as a person and a comedian. Essential for fans of Robin Williams and for fans of comedy.
