A Legend Missed (Happy Birthday Robin Williams)



On August 11th 2014 the entertainment industry lost a giant.
The great Robin Williams passed, and the world mourned. Not just a comedian (though had he only been recognized as a comedian, he STILL would be legendary) but a versatile actor, his manic energy, insanely head spinning improv skills, and dramatic chops made him something the world rarely sees. The complete package.
He of course will be recognized for his comedy, both on the stage and screen. From Mork & Mindy to Popeye (a film that was very much a part of my childhood), to Mrs. Doubtfire and Jumanji, his films made masses of filmgoers happy. Still do.
But as someone who works within the underground horror scene and covers many things creepy, I really want to recognize him in a small and very underrated thriller, 2002's "One Hour Photo."
His absolutely chilling performance as a photo technician in a squeaky clean retail mart, it's a performance against type that rivals anything in thriller films. It captures the loneliness of his existence and the dark turns he takes. Masterful acting from a masterful actor.
So as we recognize him on his birthday, let's remember the superb legacy he left behind for us to enjoy. Thank you, Robin Williams.
