  1. Hi Gill. Ok, I’ve finally decided. For my then films, I would like to explore two Robin Williams films. “Good Morning Vietnam” ( 1987 ) and “Dead Poets Society”, and for my now films, I would like to explore two of Robin Williams last movies, “Boulevard” ( 2014 ) and “The Angriest Man In Brooklyn”. Let me know if that will be okay?

  2. Hi Gill. For my choice, I’m going to change things around a bit. Instead of “Good Morning Vietnam”, can I talk about “Mork & Mindy” and instead of “Boulevard”, can I write about “One Hour Photo” ( 2002 )? I am still going to do “Dead Poets Society” and “The Angriest Man In Brooklyn”. Nothing has changed there.
