I am saddened by the death of Robin Williams. I enjoyed watching him in so many movies. More than his comedic roles, though, it was his more serious performances that resonated made me love him.
Dead Poets Society
is one of my favorite films of all time. His role in Good Will Hunting
– playing the part of a mentor with a steadfast belief in the inherent genius of a disenfranchised young man - inspired me. In these roles, I feel as though I got to see Robin for who he truly was.
I believe Robin’s comedic brilliance was his coping mechanism- the way he tried to make sense of a world he fundamentally couldn't conform to. For me, his huge heart and ability to inspire and uplift was actually his Soul Signature. Beneath the one-liners and witty repartee, he was a champion for the underprivileged; he helped those who had lost hope in themselves.
