How Williams should be remembered
There are countless Robin Williams roles that will go down in history, Dr. Maguire, Genie, Mrs. Doubtfire, etc. But I don't think I'll come across another Williams movie that captured HIS persona so well, mostly because when he found the script he had it tailored to his comic abilities. Will modern audiences understand a lot of the 60s references? Probably not. You don't have to, his dizzying, hilarious comic genius is whip fast and unrelenting, and everything he does is humorous in some way. The film itself is great as well, with a good supporting cast and a healthy mix of drama because, after all, this was a backdrop to a horrific war. Come for Williams, stay for the great music, acting, and a lot of good laughs.
