    Come Inside My Mind is a reflection of Robin Williams' journey as a comedian and actor, told mostly in his own words. It traces his early years growing up, his family environment and relationships and interweaves with archival footage, private home movies and interviews with family, colleagues and friends, as it takes the viewer on a journey through his career until the untimely end. With insight from David Letterman, Billy Crystal. Pam Dawber and others, this documentary provides a unique insight into the man on and off screen. It covers his explosion of energy on stage and the silence off it. It touches on various aspects such as his friendships with John Belushi and Christopher Reeve, and reveals through behind the scenes footage what Willliams was like on set in between takes on projects like Mork & Mindy, One Hour Photo, Awakenings and more. With the many voices inside Robin Williams' head, he expertly put them on stage and on screen creating immortal personas that spark of genius even today, it's just tragic how the one voice he couldn't drown out was the one that misinformed him about what was true. A funny, poignant, sad yet celebratory look at the life and mind of Robin Williams, Come Inside My Mind is not exhaustive enough to be definitive, but makes you laugh and cry while reminding you of a legend of our lifetime and his eternal genius.
