what dreams may come robin williams

Hollywood lost one its great actors on Monday to an apparent suicide, leaving many stunned and saddened. Robin Williams was just 63 years old when he was found dead in his Bay Area apartment, police reported.

In addition to the brilliant comedic performances for which he is commonly known, Williams left a trail of subtle, dramatic roles in his wake, including the 1998 film, “What Dreams May Come.”

In this highly spiritual movie that explores the concept of death and the afterlife, Williams’ character, Chris Nielson, dies in a car accident four years after losing his two children. In the scene below, Neilson awakens to find himself in the afterlife, which is both beautiful and unexpected. In the afterlife he is reunited with his dog and at first confuses his surroundings for “dog heaven.”

As he continues exploring the afterlife and coming to terms with his death, however, Nielson takes ownership of the situation. “Maybe I’m not in your heaven after all, girl,” he says. “Maybe you’re in mine.”

Here are two more inspiring scenes from Williams’ life work:

From the 1989 “Dead Poets Society”:

From the 1997 “Good Will Hunting”:
