Offers a portrait in unfathomable courage. It's a horror story shackled to a hero's journey in which a man with a surpassingly fertile mind feels himself -- his deepest, essential self -- coming inexorably, inexplicably undone.

A moving coda to a life ended much too soon.

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.

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.

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

The film leaves the audience with the lasting hope that, in death, Williams can help others to "be less afraid."

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.
