Critic Reviews for Robin's Wish

All Critics (44) | Top Critics (8)

The man who gave so much joy to so many millions spent his last years burdened by unbearable and inexplicable sorrow. What a world.

September 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A documentary that's honest and scary, wrenching and moving.

September 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Tries to balance celebrating Robin Williams' life with explaining the undiagnosed illness that resulted in his death. The documentary tilts toward the latter, creating an uneven tribute.

Top Critic

"Robin's Wish," of course, can't lessen the tragedy of Williams' death, but it helps us better reconcile the suicide of such a joyous, irrepressible soul.

September 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

As potentially valuable as "Robin's Wish" is for illuminating Williams's death - initial reports noted his past struggles with addiction and depression - it is more affecting and appealing as a tribute.

September 1, 2020 | Full Review…

Although Robin's Wish is ultimately unwilling or unable to really grapple with the emotions of the people left behind after suicide, it is a compassionate film that will bring information about Williams' condition to a wide audience.
