Time for a midweek movie, folks! Today we do a rewind with One Hour Photo - a 2002 movie about a photo laboratory employee and his unhealthy obsession with a suburban family.
One Hour Photo tells the story of a lonely photo lab employee (played by Robin Williams). His life is a lackluster routine – he spends his time at work and has no one to go home to, except for a pet hamster. His only interaction with people is when he attends to their film development needs, but he’s particularly enamored with the Yorkin family – and this is when a simple interest turns into a full-blown obsession.
Written and directed by Mark Romanek whose work includes music videos for Johnny Cash (“Hurt”), Nine Inch Nails (“Closer”), Weezer (“El Scorcho”), Madonna (“Rain”), among others.
