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.

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.

1-HR Photo Takes Too Long to Develop

Ok, ok-everyone believes that Robin Williams can play the creepy-stalker type. Anyone who paid the $8 to see Christopher Nolan’s Insomnia can attest to that. My problem is this: why can’t he pick better movies in which to play the creepy stalker guy? 1-Hr Photo was the movie I had anticipated as the end of the late summer/early fall drought of lifeless movies. Unfortunately this film provided no such relief. The trailers for Photo (released by Fox’s Searchlight division) depicted a lonely man, longing for a family of his own, who is pushed to the edge by divorce, and a demanding boss (played by Gary Cole of Office Space). This is the basic premise, but there is no edge. You never really feel sorry for Robin William’s character, and that’s the key to making this movie work. Without...

"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.
