Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind offers a poignant -- albeit tantalizingly incomplete -- peek behind the curtain of a brilliant performer's tragically curtailed life and career.

Tinged with nostalgia and emotion, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind conveys the messy complexities of the man, while serving as an unabashed celebration of his work.
There are ups and downs, particularly among the feature films, but we get to see the irrepressible, unpredictable, inventive Williams on top of his game often enough that the documentary flies by.
That Williams remains elusive by the movie's end only amplifies the feeling of how original and irreplaceable he was.
More than any cradle-to-grave narrative, these are the primary reasons to accept the documentary's titular summons: to witness Williams' artistry all over again, to see something unseen from a performer who was so ubiquitous and so prolific.
Come Inside My Mind valiantly tries to penetrate the silence.
I was struck, at the end of the film, by the clarity of the impression it left, not as to Williams' work, but as to his struggles.
As if in tribute to its subject, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind - which debuted at Sundance in January and hits screens on Sky Atlantic this month - is a tour de force.
A film that looks beyond the Robin Williams we lost, to give us back the Robin Williams we loved.
If you miss him and if you missed this documentary when it debuted a few months ago, don't miss it now. I laughed and I cried. So will you.
It is often hilarious, because so much of Williams's material and its manic delivery still feels so fresh... But the lingering effect is entirely poignant.
The film looks with pleasure, but doesn't fulfill expectations with the darkest moments of his life. [Full Review in Spanish]
This magnificent documentary produced by HBO offers a belated, yet healing way of saying one final goodbye to Robin Williams, taken all too abruptly from us back in 2014.
"Robin would just be...whatever person he was with, he'd be...what they wanted him to be. He just...didn't operate like normal people. He was very vulnerable that's for sure. He held onto a lot of things and internalized a lot of things. He felt everything."
I've never felt closer to Robin Williams.
