Origin Story:  A Documentary

Kulap Vilaysack is doing an Indiegogo campaign to finish post production on her documentary about her family and going to Laos to meet her father for the first time.

Also check out her episode of the Mental Illness Happy Hour podcast.

You guys, go support her! 

The documentary really hit home for me. Just 2 years ago, I finally met my birth father in Vientiane, Laos too for the first time after realizing that the father-figure I grew up with was not my biological dad.  The research process, the factor of being an immigrant and/or refugee, being separated from family members due to war, all plays a key role. There are other Lao young adults I know as well that have a very similar situation as this, as they too try to connect back to their homeland.

“[Robin] Williams’ filmography is littered with the forgettable (The Big Wedding) and the regrettable (Old Dogs). He had a habit of using his skills as a crutch, as in a painful improv sequence in the 2006 comedyRV that found him busting out a decades-out-of-date b-boy impressionor relying on a wistful man-child twinkle (e.g. Hook). But it’s impossible to imagine anyone else playing Williams’ best roles, and The Fisher King easily ranks among them. I’m not sure that’s why it was the first Williams movie I thought of after hearing about his death, however. It’s often unwise and irrelevant to connect actors to the roles they play, and yet something about Williams’ suicide has invited it. He often played men struggling with darkness, sometimes without success, frequently men who used verbal agility and unbridled energy as weapons in the fight. Few movies put that struggle to the fore as prominently as The Fisher King.”

Keith Phipps takes a look at one of Robin Williams’ finest performances, which found him learning to shrug off the expectations of “genius” and reconcile his talents as a comedian to more dramatic work. [Read more…]

17 TIMES THAT ROBIN WILLIAMS MADE US LAUGH VERY, VERY HARD (VIDEO)

Goodbye, Robin Williams.

And thanks so much for endless laughs you gave us at the movies and on television.

Watch 17 of his most brilliant performances here.

Don’t mean to be a nag but there’s a typo in the 5th gif. It should be “better than that” instead of “better then that”. Just wanted to let you know so you can fix it.

RIP Robin Williams; you’ll be in my heart forever. Robin was definitely one of those people worth remembering.

"Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again." - Zelda Williams
