This is another one my favorite Robin Williams films that no one mentions when listing his films. People seem to have amnesia when it comes to many of the films he's done. Some of his best work was in the films no one else seems to be able to recall. So sad.. But it's to be expected. Sheeple copies what other Sheeple does. 😐

This film came at a time that Robin Williams was trying to break away from the whole "comedy" thing. For this film, it worked. Despite the years of hairy arms and stupid jokes, I bought everything he had for this film. He became the creepy Sy who ended up caring a bit too much about the people which he served. A great film that leads you to wonder a little more about the people who you don't really think about in your day-to-day life...

Incredible performance by Robbin Williams the master of roll play. Here Robbin plays a phychotic delusional photo shop clerk who psychoemotionally takes on the psychopseudo identity of his customers--one inparticular; where he is later found to have amassed a fortress of copied customer photos used as his pseudopsychoprojection into this family's personal lives. Robbin's performance here is stunning to say the very least. He is the master of introspective psychoprojection--and is brilliantly mesmerising!
