Robin Williams - O Captain, My Captain

Very sad today to hear of the death of comic genius Robin Williams. As a kid I loved him as the gentle, zany alien in Mork And Mindy, and then watched as his career blossomed into great movie roles in such films as Awakenings, The Fisher King, Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam and Good Will Hunting. The man was a fireball of energy and invention, especially in his stand-up shows, but could also reduce you to tears with his subtle acting performances. Here he is above as Parry in The Fisher King, a man struggling with depression by creating his own, personal universe. Williams himself had a similar struggle, but it seems he sadly lost...
