Very few movies have made me hurt in the way that One Hour Photo did. Robin Williams' performance was brilliant; he completely captured the characteristics of the sick, the obsessive and the lonely.

Williams is surprisingly good and creepy.

A film about obsession that is equal parts sad and chilling. Robin Williams plays a man who is so multi-layered that we pity him and fear him simultaneously. The film achieves great levels of tension by the subtlest lines and looks, not an easy task.

An absolutely phenomenal film. One of the very few great thriller films made in recent history. Before I saw this film I genuinely thought that Robin Williams was a horrible one character actor; but, was proven incredibly wrong by this film. It is a beautifully shot, expertly colored and incredibly well acted film. The thing that makes this film especially creepy is the fact that you could place Sy the Photo Guy in your life. Just an ordinary, soft spoken, hard working and obsessive compulsive manager of a department within a big box retailer that is a just a little too obsessed with one of his customers. The ending of this film is the real kicker.

If you are looking into a career as a stalker this movie will give you a good place to start. Robin Williams plays a lonly middle-aged man working as a tech in a photo shop where he inputs himself into the lives of the people in the pictures he works with. In the end you feel bad for Williams' character.

"One Hour Photo" by Yojimbo

A socially disfunctional photo technician develops a fixation on a "perfect" family who's idyllic existence is presented to him in the series of picture-postcard snapshots they bring in to develop. I must admit I approached this film not expecting much, mainly because of the "R" word. But I was very pleasantly surprised. The presentation of the story from the stalker's point of view gives the story a fresh twist, as you can actually have some sympathy for the character rather than his being stereotypically demonised. It's also very stylishly directed with particularly nice use of primary colours and the performances are all strong, particularly (and it pains me to admit it) Robin Williams. An intelligent and perceptive psychological thriller with a Hitchcockesque voyeuristic spin.
