RIP Robin Williams

I've read about plenty of celebrity deaths in my life, most recently Philip Seymour Hoffman. But this one more than any other has upset me. I watched him as a child in Mork and Mindy reruns, and he has had some timeless roles in movies but when I heard the news yesterday one particular role suddenly came to mind, Dr. Sean Maguire in the 1997 film Good Will Hunting. The scene that immediately came to mind was where Matt Damon analyzes a painting in Maguire's office and basically psychoanalyzes Williams character to the core.
The scene is amazing and sadly, now in retrospect I believe these two amazing actors weren't acting at all.....
RIP Robin Williams.
