Loc: Petaluma, CA
Fisher King. It's hard to express how much this movie touched me.
Robin Williams was a local. He went to one of my High School rivals, maybe 15 miles away. Terra Linda HS (San Rafael) vs. Redwood HS (Mill Valley, CA).
Mork and Mindy was one of those sitcoms that I couldn't stand. Was it the rivalry? I don't know. But Williams earned my love and respect with a legacy of great movies and interviews and stand-up andů Just being a great human being. I'm so sorry his demons couldn't be silenced.
I also would have trouble expressing how much Fisher King means to me. Seems several of us here love this movie. This is one I have seen I am sure 20 times; though yes I admit, I can obsess on things. I was reminded that Robin was active in homeless issues, which makes it even better. Of course, it is not just Robin that made that movie what it was - Gilliam in his finest hour, Bridges, Amanda Plummer (who also had a short part with Williams in Garp, short but very well done), Mercedes Ruehl, the late Michael Jeter.. all at their best. I haven't seen it in a few years, so I think I will procure it again.
Yeah, I have been watching old M&M clips. I first saw it when I was like 8 and everything is good when you are that age. Rewatching clilps of it, it is still surprisingly funny, better than I expected.
