And the work history of this multi-talented actor makes his fans surely miss him to this day. So, today we have managed to gather some of his most personally significant and notable performances.
Dead Poets Society (1989) is probably known as Robin Williams’s best movie in his outstanding career. In this refreshing drama, he played an English teacher who used to care about his students more than anything. Beyond any shadow of a doubt, his remarkable performance earned him one Oscar nomination.
The Fisher King (1991) is a modern-day story about the search for love, sanity, and trauma. It has portrayed the absurdity of life and the damaged ego of a depressed radio DJ, failure, personal delinquencies. Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams brought a humanizing tale to life. Additionally, in this movie, his dazzling performance has brought him the best actor nomination.
Insomnia (2002) is such an underrated movie by Christopher Nolan. However, this murder tale has featured Robin Williams with Al Pacino. Apart from all the comical characters, this non-comic character has added more flavor to this classical psychological thriller. Moreover, Williams’s intriguing performance as Walter Finch made Insomnia a must-watch among his work.
Good Will Hunting (1997) is one of the most loved movies of Robin Williams’s career. He has played the character of a therapist, Dr. Sean Maguire. It eventually portrays the meeting with his wife and how he is grieving. And later, the details of love he still has for his late wife. This new dimension of Williams’s capacity of opening an emotional epiphany has found its way through the well-crafted drama.
The Birdcage (1996) is an adapted French movie where the plot was the main concern. This movie is perhaps one in the collection of remake movies that later came out better than the original. Robbin Williams and Nathan Land as two gay artists depicted the story terrifically.
Good Morning Vietnam (1987) depicts an inspiring story of a motor-mouthed on-air announcer during the Vietnam War. The story played a significant role in showing the hierarchy of officials. And how the art of unconventional banter through radio broadcasts had been harassed. Good Morning Vietnam has the irony of war and also the wild humor that was evidently created for Williams alone. This movie earned Williams his first Oscar nomination and also got him his first Golden Globe award.
Aladdin (1992) featured Robin Williams as the genie. And it eventually added all the more enthusiasm and flair to the classic Disney character. We can’t think of anyone but Robin to voice the energetic, fast-talking, and wish-granting Genie. His work with Disney has earned him his third win for the Golden Globe Awards.
