Robin Williams's Creepiest Film "One Hour Photo" Has Trouble Developing

When a comedic actor ventures into drama the results tend towards the unpredictable; for Robin Williams it's been a bumpy road, but an undeniably interesting one with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Good Will Hunting, the dramedy Patch Adams, the quasi-spiritual What Dreams May Come, and Bobcat Goldthwait's sentimentally cynical World's Greatest Dad (among quite a few others). He's played roles that run the gamut, but if you had to pin down the creepiest character he's ever undertaken, it's hard to argue with his portrayal of the emotionally scarred Seymour Parrish in the otherwise forgettable One Hour Photo. A few tremendous leaps of logic (sometimes called plotholes) and a sloppy attempt at explaining away Parrish's damaged mind, ultimately sabotage Romanek's offbeat thriller, but not before it manages to creep out the audience with how convincingly Williams plays the kindly stranger you wouldn't think about but who just might be stalking your family.
