rePost::Bobcat Goldthwait Thanks ‘My Best Friend’ Robin Williams | Indiewire

“I’m emotional,” he said. “You know, Robin Williams was my best friend and this is the exact same theater where I showed him ‘World’s Greatest Dad’ for the first time. The reason I’m bringing that up is that Robin’s a big part of why we’re here today.”

Goldthwait said that he had initially wanted to tell Crimmins’ story as a narrative feature, but Williams felt otherwise. “Robin was familiar with our friendship and he knew Barry’s story,” Goldthwait said. “He suggested I make it as a documentary. In fact, he gave me the initial money that started this movie in February.”
