6 Amazing Robin Williams Movies We Will Never Forget
5 Of 6 Hook
In this imaginative film, in which Williams plays a Pan who has grown up and become a neglectful yuppie named Peter Banning, is positioned as a kiddie adventure, but there's so much more. It's a huge psychological film about responsibility and fatherhood. The film even mimics the structure of a Freudian therapy session, ultimately uncovering layers of memories to reach Peter’s earliest memory, when he willed himself to escape as a baby from a mother who was making plans for his future. Spielberg, the creator of sci-fi fantasies, was in the process of going from making films about childhood to making films about parenthood — Hook is the fulcrum on which his career turned.
6 Of 6 Good Will Hunting
Williams finally scored an Oscar win with his crucial supporting work in Good Will Hunting. As the therapist who helps Will Hunting (Matt Damon) move beyond his troubled past, Williams delivered some of his most sensitive dramatic work. "Even rarer than a breath of fresh air is a breath of fresh Hollywood film," declared Jay Carr of the Boston Globe, adding, "Brainy and heartfelt and right on target, Good Will Hunting is such a film."
