Official Trailer for HBO’s Doc ‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’
“Robin was like nothing I’d ever seen.” HBO has debuted an official trailer for Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, made by doc filmmaker Marina Zenovich (of Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic, Water Power: A California Heist). This doc originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. It’s a loving tribute to the late Robin Williams, a comedic mastermind and beloved actor, who touched all of our hearts in some way through his work, before passing away in 2014. The doc features new interviews with Lewis Black, Billy Crystal, Pam Dawber, Whoopi Goldberg, Eric Idle, David Letterman, Steve Martin, David Steinberg, Zak Williams, and more. It also has tons of archival footage that covers his entire life and career. I saw this at Sundance, and while it is deeply moving and heartfelt, it’s a more straightforward doc and not as clever or unique as I was hoping. That said, it’s worth seeing just to celebrate Robin Williams once again.
