General | Latest Info

Robin Williams earned his big-Screen debut as Popeye in 1980 on the growing popularity of his frenzied, freewheeling stand-up routine, and his literally out-of-this-World role on TV Mork & Mindy. Williams ' follow-up, World According to Garp, was quick to reveal a sensitive artist, melancholic side to the actor that sought fulfillment in dramatic characters and movies. Of course, it was the 80s, and the market demanded awful comedies, which Williams was obliged to make until that special breakthrough role that would propel him out of yuppie slapstick. That moment arrived in 1987 with Barry Levinsons ' Good Morning, Vietnam, box office smash that nab Williams his First Oscar nomination and was part and parcel of Reagan-era movies like First Blood and Platoon that re-defined American perception of War. Vietnam kicked off a strong run of critical praise and Academy recognition, as William appears in Dead Poets Society, Awakenings, and Fisher King One after another If comedy was beginning to look like something in the rear view mirror, Williams abruptly shifted gears into family fare, starting with 1991s Hook, and then Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, and Flubber. Williams was everywhere in the 90s, and it all culminated with multiple career-launching Good Will Hunting, which got him his final Oscar nomination and only win. After flops Bicentennial Man and Jakob Liar saw him veer hard into sentimentality, Williams re-invent himself as a dark angel in 2002 with Death to Smoochy, Insomnia, and One Hour Photo. Broad comedies would still remind audiences of old eager-to-please Williams, even as they repel critics. And he could use his pre-conceive image as a genial figure in his favor in ensemble pieces like the Night at Museum series, Happy Feet, or Lee Daniels Butler. But it was obvious Williams was increasingly drawn to pitch-black comedies and dramas, which ramped up in menace over the course of Night Listener, Worlds Greatest Dad, Angriest Man in Brooklyn, and Merry Friggin Christmas. Williams final on-Screen performance was 2015s Boulevard, and his last voice role was in 2017 for Absolutely Anything. Certify Fresh 2018 documentary, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, remains to illuminate more of his life, as we rank all Robin Williams movies by Tomatometer.

6 The Fisher King (7.5)

Could this be Williamss greatest performance? As noted, so much of his work, both comic and serious, seems to center on characters who are holding back darkness. Here, he plays a mad homeless man who used to be an academic who go off deep end after his wife was brutally murder. And, matched with the wit and vision of director Terry Gilliam, another funny man whose comic work dances with the horrors of the world, Williams delivers one of the most perfectly calibrated performances of his career: freewheeling in that way we know and love, but also speaking to a deep sense of loss. Its comic is as inspired by a madman, as a wounded warrior.

2 Dead Poets Society (8.1)

What is left to say about this marvelously powerful film? As inspirational teacher at a stuffy 1950s prep school who teaches his students to seize day and that poetry still has a lot of life lessons to impart, Williams is again in earnest mode, though he certainly has his freestyling comic moments. Not everybody loves this, true to some, it is a mockery of what study of serious literature is supposed to be about. To them, I say: Pretend youre teenager starting to fall in love with books; now try to resist this movie. I am not sure it can be done. Also, given what transpires in the plot of this movie, I am not sure well ever be able to view it in the same way ever again.
