A film that over the years I've come to appreciate far more than my initial viewing due to the brilliant, unforgettable effort by Robin Williams who gives one of his most haunting performances.

Without Robin Williams, 'One Hour Photo' is just another predictable B movie thriller. He's like that slow train wreck, personified, that people can't seem to take their eyes off.

Robin Williams gets a chance to stretch as an actor in this semi-effective thriller.

Call it an exercise in threat management, free with the purchase of a photo album--or a movie ticket.
April 29, 2009
This is a brilliant, incredibly directed film with excellent performances all around from Nielsen, and Williams who deserves an Oscar nod.

This immaculately made first feature from noted musicvid and commercials director Mark Romanek provides Robin Williams with one of his creepiest, atypical roles, and the comic star responds with an unusually restrained performance...

In a story so reliant on detail as the engine for character action, it's frustrating and annoying to see the film spiral down the gurgler because of a few (but crucial) lapses of attention to detail.

Robin Williams creates a character who earns our revulsion--and somehow also our sympathy.

Sy is a complete character with a physicality, inner monologue and motivation that we haven't seen from Mr. Williams in a long time. And it's a pleasure to watch.

It has arresting things to say about how the family photo is used less to record than to project, and how far that projection can be from the truth.
December 6, 2005
This story begs for a harder focus, the kind of thing Stanley Kubrick was always good at, at least until he got a little too focused. What saves the film is Robin Williams in a very atypical role.

This is not the Robin Williams you are used to seeing.

What brings the film to a level beyond is Williams's superb performance and, in turn, Romanek's carefully calibrated direction.

A music video is like espresso: a lot of visual power compressed into five minutes. A movie needs to know something of the rhythms of everyday life, or else the audience get dizzy and exhausted.

This isn't the Williams of Mrs. Doubtfire or, thank heavens, Jack or What Dreams May Come.

Robin Williams has mastered the essence of the overlooked man. Quite simply, it is a fantastic move for his career.

Williams is at his very best ...
