thank you for turning me on to the magic of suspenders, friend. i liked you so much even when you were sort of annoying, and that's a special kind of fondness that i don't feel for many people.

depression is a killer. i wish someone could have helped him.

Rest in Peace.

That's pretty much the size of it... what a truly unique talent and personality. So, so sad.

I don't know what my first exposure to him was, but I very fondly remember alladin, hook, and mrs doubtfire as a child, good will hunting and patch adams as a preteen/teen, and many many voiceovers since becoming a parent. I know nothing of the man as an individual, but if that was an ounce of his personality shining through on the screen, he must have been a fantastic person to know. He will be greatly missed.

He always seemed to have a very childlike and sweet side, especially when he was on Mork and Mindy, and his humor was never cruel or unkind. I am sorry that such a unique perspective and voice has lost his battle with his demons. For me, its a reminder that even when you are incredibly talented and wealthy, life can be very hard and that untreated mental illness can sap the joy from even the most joyful soul.

Rest in Peace, Robin Williams. May your soul find ease and rest.

Oh, no - I just saw this and hoped it was one of those mistakes that occasionally happen. He had a rare talent and joie de vivre (often squandered on less-than-worthy projects); his performance in The Fisher King was complete genius. It's especially sad that it seems he took his own life. RIP.

This is such sad news. He was so uniquely talented, definitely a legendary comic. What an awful way for his life to end.

I cried. Not because he's dead, but because it's so sad that even with everything he had...depression is a monster, is what i'm saying. He was such a sweet man and any time he had to get serious, it made me cry because you could tell he really felt what he was saying.

This. I'm not a huge fan of his but the fact that despite his success and that he lived to make people laugh, he could still be ill enough to want to die is heartbreaking. My friend Cassy met him at a party when she was a child and she said he went out of his way to entertain her and play with her and she will always have fond memories of him for that.

I loved him, not in everything obviously, but overall, he just seemed so great. Just thinking about someone being that sad is making me really sad. I have depression and I feel grateful that I've never really contemplated suicide. On a personal level, we just visited the grave of a friend who committed suicide a few years back and also Robin Williams reminded me of my dad in some ways, so I'm just feeling pretty bummed. Depression sucks and it sucks that people are having to post things about how it's a disease, which means that there are still people out there who think it's a personal failing.

He was in a lot of crummy things (I fear Dead Poets Society's legacy of crepe will dog his reputation forever), but he had a real talent that had a few chances to shine in things like The Fisher King and Garp. It's so sad that depression took him out.

i've never heard anyone else mention dead poets society as among his professional missteps, or in any negative way. maybe it's a generational thing. my friends and i were very sentimental twelve-year-olds when we first saw it, but i think most of us still hold that movie pretty close to our hearts. it actually inspired me and one of my closest friends to take weekend drama lessons and eventually found a drama club at our high school, and now that friend is a professional actor. so i suppose it's impossible for me to be objective about that movie, and maybe the general public has never thought much of it, but it had a strong positive impact on at least our two lives. *stands on desk* *immediately gets off desk because it is of rather poor quality and will likely not support the weight of an adult for more than a moment, but hopes the gesture was not in vain*

all that aside, the fisher king is beautiful and terribly underrated, and he never got enough attention for it.

Dead Poet's Society was soooo influential in a sea of stupid movies!

Really? I don't know anyone teaching English who doesn't think Dead Poets Society was a ham-handed nightmare akin to Braveheart for medieval historians. There was actually a piece in the Atlantic not that long ago that put its finger pretty squarely on the ways that movie gets everything completely wrong.

Fair enough. He was awesome in so many things, and it's super sad that he felt he couldn't be here any more. Mods - please feel free to delete the above. And anyway, what is more delightful than this?

I cried big frustrated tears tonight. Because, not another one. Not Robin forking Williams. His movies were a big part of my growing up and it hurts me to know that a man who brought so much joy to people, so much sincerity to his craft, had an illness who would not let him see himself for all he was worth. He was one of those ones who you could really feel his spirit, his love, coming from the screen.

I just recorded Dead Poet's Society last night to rewatch with Shae.

So heartbroken over this loss.

When my coworker told me, I started tearing up. I've never been this sad over a celebrity death before but. . . His movies (good and bad) were my childhood, man. So sad. ):
