Recommended. This is the 500th post on Dogs Bark! I don’t remember my original reaction to What Dreams May Come when it was in the theaters but it seemed like a good time to re-view it. I think my opinion has not changed . . . that it is a splashy, visually spectacular movie with some very good acting but theologically muddled and manipulative. Actually, the suicide of its lead, Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting), has resulted in many viewer to revisits the afterlife, as originally written by Twilight Zone mainstay Richard Matheson (Somewhere In Time). Williams had the peculiar knack of infusing strongly emotional work with wise humor (Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Poets Society) or ghastly sentiment (Patch Adams) or of being the straight man in a world gone mad (The World According To Garp). In What Dreams May Come all three masks are used, but mostly the last. He also advocated an alternate ending which would have greatly improved eternity.
