Movie selection 01 – Robin Williams Golden Roles

I will post a selection of recommended movies I will not comment form time to time.

Here goes the first one, it will be a selection of my favorite Robin William roles :


  • Awakenings (1990)

William in the role of Dr. Malcolm Sayer is dealing with comatose patients in an institute. He discovers a possible way to cure the patients through drug therapy. Accurate telling of the true events accounted in the novel Awakenings by Dr. Oliver Sacks.

  • Good Will Hunting (1997)

Robin William in the role of Sean Maguire, Will Hunter’s therapist. Will is a gifted genius working as a janitor at MIT. Thourough the movie he struggles to find his place in the world, torn between his desires and what people expect of him. And so, Sean makes Will realize, despite the fact he might possess an astonishing knowledge in various domains, that he still has a lot to learn about himself.

  • What Dreams May Come (1998)

The movie tells the story of love beyond death. Set in the unexpected after-life world beyond the realms of reality, fascinating and eery at the same time. Its impressive depiction of Heaven and Hell is beautiful and imaginative. The movie explores the themes of Love, Suicide, Death, Life, Folly and Happiness in a rather interesting way on the philosophical basis.

  • The Final Cut (2004)

Set in a near future where microships are implanted in people’s nervous system to record the whole life of an individual, the movie follows the story of Alan Hakman, played by Robin William. Alan is a professional cutter, whose job is to edit the memories of a departed in order to make a commemorative video destined to be played at the dead one’s funeral. The limits of ethic is questioned through this sci-fi tale as well as it questions the notion of Memory and Privacy.

So these are the four movies I wanted to suggest, they are, all four of them, worth watching. Of course, there are other good movies in which stars Robin William. I probably did not watch all of them. So this here, is a selection of my favorite movies with Robin William amongst the ones I’ve seen ^^
