Romanek has long been a fan of Stanley Kubrick and this is as close to a new Kubrick film as we will ever get since the great man died in 1999.
Each shot is a cold delight, the mise-en-scene perfectly measured, allowing the characters to unravel emotionally in their digital suburban prisons.
Williams is more akin to James Mason in Kubricks Lolita than Jack Nicholson in the Shining, but where those men rejected their families, he longs for someone elses.

 .. Leaves A Lasting Impression

"There's nothing more dangerous than a familiar face."
What brings the film to a level beyond is Williams's superb performance as the softly spoken psycho, both sinister and sympathetic, that leaves a lasting impression.
An Outstanding Psychological Thriller

Robin Williams career has been awash with hit and miss films, but with One Hour Photo he proves that if he thinks long and hard about what role he takes, and makes sure the script is at the least satisfactory he can come out with another fantastic film, and this is what he does here as Sy Parrish an American Supermarket photo developer who's calm, distant approach to life and his devotion to his work has left him lonely and with very few friends if any. He then attaches himself to a young woman and her family who routinely bring in their holiday snaps to be developed, of which William's character makes his own copy. But as he soon discovers family life is not as perfect as he first thought.

Mark Romanek's (apparently a former music video editor?!) tight direction and shocking (as in good) script give cinema yet another brilliant thriller, while William's proves that taking the right role pays off and as psycho Parrish he is funny but also very weird indeed. Scenes such as the wall montage full of family photos in Sy's flat and the scene where he breaks into the family's home and uses it as if he were a relation of theirs shock you as Romanek delves further into this disturbed mind that he has created, and the reasons as to why the lead is that way. Everything then builds to a fitting showdown and the final ending is where the film started - a common use in modern day cinema - but given here is a fantastic twist to that ritual that ties off any loose ends the viewer may have missed along the way.

On the whole; a much understated thriller of a film that deserved more credit than it got. It is a fantastic watch, brilliantly paced, acted and directed, infact at the time of writing I cannot really think of a fault with this. Yet no matter how good it is, there is better out there, but then again - and William's knows this - there is much worse out there too. A very good thriller that you should consider a look at, just remember he knows where you live!

 Williams Is Superb

A subtle and rather moving preformance that's very different from his wild comedy or sentimetal shlock, his character here is lonely and damaged and very believable. A very good film indeed
