For a first time movie director(kormanek) he did an amazing job, and to get Robin Williams to star in it, wow. Robin is incredibly pathetic as Sy Parrish, don't get me wrong, that's a compliment. Sy is supposed to be pathetic, he is supposed to make us pity him. What is amazing however, Robin managed to be eerie as well, so he puts us in a spot, we want to sympathies with him, but we cant, not really, because he is so disturbingly scary. It just shows how good an actor, Robin is. The cinematography is great too, the colour combination for example, it's so detailed and it has a dreamlike quality to them.How each scene played out, its beautiful. Kudos to Kormanek. This is different from any other thriller because the 'pyscho' is really humane, we can understand why he did what he did, actually, in the last scene, i just want to go over and hug him, there's this desperation in him, a need to be loved just like any other human being, all this is so subtly shown in the film. The actors didn't say anything particularly revealing. It's just the looks in Sy's eyes, the way he speaks, the body languages, it's so cleverly subtle that's what makes it more disturbing. I thought this film is going to be scary, with lots of gore and blood, i was pleasantly surprised, in fact, i didn't find this movie all that scary at all, it's more unsettling than scary. This movie got me thinking long after it's finished.
