It sounds like another clever if pointless excursion into the abyss, and that's more or less how it plays out.

One Hour Photo is one of those films that springs from an interesting, original premise and then doesn't know what to do with itself once it's halfway complete.

It comes only three months after Insomnia, a much better thriller where Williams played a much creepier villain

No matter how creatively saturated in color One Hour Photo is, the craft exists to play up lurid sensationalism and middle-class home invasion jitters.

Lacking [intellectual interest] and lacking the thrills, "One Hour Photo" is more like an underexposed snapshot.

the film never rises above a conventional, two dimension tale

If in this generally lousy genre Seven rates as opera, then One Hour Photo must rank somewhere between elevator music and white noise.

Ultimately well-made but only intermittently gripping.

Sy is so deeply disturbed that, paradoxically, he isn't very disturbing.

...Veers back and forth between pointless and preposterous, with a pace so slow it's like watching film develop.

The director, Mark Romanek, aims for Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, and doesn't even hit the guilty highs of The Hand That Rocks the Cradle.
October 21, 2002
It tries (at a much too leisurely pace) to build dramatic tension, managing only to feel draggy.
August 17, 2002
One Hour Photo may be better suited for the 24 hour rental than an evening at the movie theater.
