DON’T MISS: “Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind” – Director Marina Zenovich delivers a funny, intimate and heartbreaking portrait of the beloved entertainer who left us way too soon. Told largely through Williams’ own words and interviews with some of his closest confidants, the film doesn’t gloss over the demons he wrestled. But it is mostly a heartfelt celebration of what Williams brought to comedy and to the culture at large – from the wild days of late-1970s Los Angeles to his suicide in 2014. (8 p.m. Monday, HBO).
