This intimate portrait examines one of the world's most beloved and inventive comedians. Told largely through Robin's own voice and using a wealth of never-before-seen archival footage, the film examines his extraordinary life and career and reveals the spark of madness that drove him.
As an alcoholic you will violate your standards quicker than you could lower them. You will do shit that even the devil would go "Dude!".
And alcoholics, we're like assholes, we can't wait to shit on everybody, family, friends... We'll be like: "Fuck you! Fuck you! Go fuck yourself! Fuck you! Fuck! F...". I'm fucked.

It's Always The Quiet Ones That You Have To Look Out For!!
I watch this documentary with a heavy heart. You never get to see the struggles that some actors have had to go until they retire or die. Watching this shortly after he would have celebrated his 67th birthday, it is difficult to put all that content and that much energy in an HBO special in just under 2 hours, but they manage to do so. When you watch this, it will leave you nothing short of wanting to binge watch everything Robin Williams has touched. Growing up to most of his movies, in the peak of his time, brings me back to my childhood. I can't remember the amount of times I've seen Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Good Will Hunting, and probably my favourite, Patch Adams, which I feel is borderline autobiographical, minus the medical aspect. I was really happy being able to see my childhood friend again and I know you will be too. I strongly recommend you watch this if you ever loved Robin Williams. You won't be disappointed.
