One Hour Photo

For all of the work Robin Williams has done over the years nothing stands out quite as much as his performance here. His quiet understated presentation of a neurotic becoming unhinged is utterly terrifying and the results are an experience you wont easily forget. Mark Romanek, who is mainly known for his music video work, not only directs this to perfection but he also provided a unique, subtle and supremely disturbing script. This is one I don't want to give too much of the story away and is it such a special one but for those of you who've not yet seen it I will say Williams plays a photo developer who becomes obsessed with what appears to be your everyday average family. What ends up unfolding will creep you out long after you watch it and you could very well find yourself choosing to digitaly develop your own pictures in the future. This was one of Williams' "dark trilogy" and by far is the best!

ohhhh I think Robin Williams just gets better with every film he does. He has such a dark side to him that shadowed by his comic apearance comes off very twisted indeed....
