Terry Gilliam on ideas and the genius of Robin Williams

Robin Williams as Parry

Robin Williams as Parry

I’ve just rediscovered this on-stage interview I did with Terry Gilliam back in 2011. In it we discussed the gestation and evolution of ideas, prompting Gilliam to say this about his collaborator and pal Robin Williams: “Where do ideas come from? Robin Williams is a perfect example of what I think happens: I think there’s a platonic world of ideas and things and they’re floating in the air and if you have responding abilities things come to you. Robin is one of those people that just thinks all the knowledge and ideas that people have ever known is just floating around and he can suck it in and he spews it out in the most wonderful combinations.”

It’s a little late in the day to be posting tributes to Williams but I thought this was relevant.
