I don’t know about other people, but the first picture of Robin Williams in my mind fades in from Jumanji, yes, the original one. For me as a boy, Jumanji was just a way to enjoy an exciting journey, maybe for some people it wasn’t the finest work of Robin Williams, but for me, it was always the “Alan Parrish” that concluded the movie with a powerful lesson about father and son’s relationship. When I grew up and became a film-goer, I wanted to seek more about the work of Williams and became a big fan of him after watching “Good morning Vietnam” and “Aladdin” but the best was yet to come.
I later realized how a person can perform so naturally in complicated scenarios of “Good Will Hunting”, “Patch Adams” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” If you have not watched them yet, just immediately add them to your watch list.
