Has It Already Been A Year?

A year ago today we lost a brilliant soul.  As a performer, Robin Williams could vacillate between frenetic comedy and heart-rending drama.  What we didn’t know was that privately he struggled with depression and mental illness.  I hope that his death encourages us to talk about it and to be understanding of those who also struggle.

My favorite all-time movie is 1991’s The Fisher King.  Williams plays a homeless man whose mission in life is to locate the Holy Grail, which he believes is in a townhouse in Manhattan.  It’s great movie with amazing performances by Williams, Jeff Bridges, Mercedes Ruehl (who won a Oscar), and the late Michael Jeter.

I thought Robin Williams deserved an Oscar for his performance in The Fisher King.  He won the award in 1997 for Good Will Hunting, but I maintain it’s because they dropped the ball in ’91.  If you’ve never seen the movie, you should check it out.

        I knoooow! The movie never gets old and I love how it makes the brain rethink life every single time! All of his movie’s were fantastic (obviously ) but The Fisher King had/has that tiny bit of something extra special.

        Good weekend thus far thanks! 🙂
