ONE HOUR PHOTO (15)
Not quite the psychological thriller it's marketed as, far more a complex character study of infatuation and obsession, gripping though it is simply because of Robin Williams' strong central performance in a role which is very much against the actor's usual type. Aside from this performance, or had the casting been any other actor, this would be a rather forgettable, average movie.
On a separate note, it is photographed very well, with photography being one of the main plot devices in the story, but this is very much style over substance, with writer-director Mark Romanek showing some stylish flourishes with his debut feature, but there's much room for further development.
