If you thought Jr. was an interesting man, wait until you become acquainted with Sr. The man, the legend…
Similar to “The Fabelman’s,” Robert Downey Jr. turns the camera inward and takes us back through his fascinating origin story, which rests upon a beautiful catharsis between father and son as they both face their mortality in different ways. It shows why Jr. was so damn good in “The Judge,” as the father son conflict seems to be familiar territory for him. That conflict may have been a weight on him throughout his life, but it was a weight that forced him to strengthen in a way that made him far stronger for having learned to carry it.
RIP Sr., and hugs to Jr. A truly beautiful tribute.
