Official Trailer for HBO's Doc 'Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind'
"Robin was like nothing I'd ever seen." HBO has debuted an official trailer for Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, made by doc filmmaker Marina Zenovich (of Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic, Water & Power: A California Heist). This doc originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. It's a loving tribute to the late Robin Williams, a comedic mastermind and beloved actor, who touched all of our hearts in some way through his work, before passing away in 2014. The doc features new interviews with Lewis Black, Billy Crystal, Pam Dawber, Whoopi Goldberg, Eric Idle, David Letterman, Steve Martin, David Steinberg, Zak Williams, and more. It also has tons of archival footage that covers his entire life and career. I saw this at Sundance, and while it is deeply moving and heartfelt, it's a more straightforward doc and not as clever or unique as I was hoping. That said, it's worth seeing just to celebrate Robin Williams once again.

We have no way to know the pain anyone is going through. As of this writing I am still sick with tears with the suicide of Anthony Bourdain...someone, like Robin, that you would never know that they were battling such demons. It's too early to know the reasons behind Anthony's decision, but Robin was a very sick man when he committed suicide...not just depression, but brain lesions, a pathology. All I know is...well, nothing actually....

He was outstanding in so many roles, although, I didn't like all of them, to be honest. But then again, it looks like that his life was one of passion and pain. It may have been a tough life to live, but it looks to me that it was also an accomplished one ...
