I dont know…the first thing I thought of when I heard the news was this quote from Alan Moore’s “Watchmen”
“Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor…I am Pagliacci.”
― Alan Moore, Watchmen
then I stumbled across this…
“But doctor, I AM Pagliacci.” That’s the only way this makes sense. Can’t stand thinking of him being that sad. #RIPRobinWilliams

Robin Williams. It’s time for a convoluted stream of consciousness. Ask Me Anything! : IAmA http://ow.ly/AfU3Q
One of the few movie to make me cry! Not sure why but something came over me when I first watched this movies, years ago. Still gets me a bit but I fight the tears back!
