** It's even lampshaded in the film, when Nina mentions she's thinking about buying one of the new digital cameras and Sy asked her not to, saying he wouldn't want to lose their business. Even sadder in hindsight, when you realize he'd been using their photos to lessen his own loneliness.

Seymour "Sy" Parrish works as a technician at a supermarket's one-hour photo developing clinic. He's clean-cut and quite ordinary to the point of boring, but not all is well in Sy's world. He slowly becomes obsessed with the Yorkins, a seemingly perfect modern American family who are among his regular customers. Sy tries to interject himself into the Yorkins' lives, which they subtly turn down. After learning a dark secret happening within the family, he is distraught and tries to do something about it, although in disturbingly stalker-like ways. Interspersed in the whole mess are more than a few really creepy moments and a very well built thriller climax.

''One Hour Photo'' is a 2002 PsychologicalThriller film directed by Creator/MarkRomanek and starring Creator/RobinWilliams.



Released to positive reviews, this movie gave Williams a much-needed CareerResurrection and along with ''Film/{{Insomnia}}'' helped usher in the so-called [[DarkerAndEdgier "dark period"]] of the actor's career where his persona's (A man who wants love and validation from everyone around him.) disturbing subtext is brought to the forefront after spending the past few years making overly maudlin, TastesLikeDiabetes-infused movies. Despite [[TechnologyMarchesOn digital photography making photo developing somewhat irrelevant,]] the movie is still incredibly effective as a PsychologicalThriller.

* AuthorAppeal: Sy gives Jake a toy from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' at one point; ''Eva'' was Robin Williams' favorite anime series.



* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: A number of fans of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' like to point out Sy's and Jake's mispronunciations of the word "Evangelion" as "Ay-von-jelly-un." Sometimes with hilarious consequences. (Robin Williams apparently stuck this in, along with referring to the character in question as one of the heroes -- it is ''NOT'' -- to troll his fellow Eva fans.)
