My favorite Robin Williams' movie was "Dead Poets Society." When it came out in 1989, I was living in Mexico and went to see it 3 or 4 times, taking different people with me each time. The "seize the day" concept featured in that movie is one that we as Christians should embrace with a spiritual focus, as Ephesians 5:16 says, "redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Time is short, and we must make the most of every moment to be salt and light to others.
I also enjoyed "Good Will Hunting," for which Williams won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1997. However, the swearing in that movie is excessive. For that reason I prefer "Dead Poet's Society."
I will miss his future movies, as will countless others.
