Days later, we’re still struggling to make sense of the untimely death of Robin Williams. It’s still hard to believe he’s gone. That we’ll never get to see any new movies or hear any new jokes. And that, given the tragic nature of his death, that he’ll never know how much we appreciated him and how much he meant to us.
The best way to remember Robin Williams, one of the best actors of his generation and one of the best comedic minds of all-time, is through his work. To pay tribute, we put together this video dedicated to the man and his movies. It’s easy to remember how funny Robin Williams was: he was almost always on. He was a tight bundle of manic energy and the jokes seemed to be exploding out of him, as if he himself couldn’t keep them in. But, for all his excitable humor, he was just as good (better?) at playing calm or restrained. He was both a character and a character actor.
To watch the video above, is to get sad all over again, but it’s also to pay one last (and lasting) tribute to a great comedian, a actor, and a great man.
