Robin Williams stars as the lonely manager of the photo-printing department of a large store who becomes
obsessed with a family whose snapshots he's developed for years. Starting to see himself as a member of the family, he eventually confuses
his fantasy with reality and the result is calamity. Also with Connie Nielsen, Michael Vartan, Dylan Smith and Andrew A Rolfes. [1:38]
SEX/NUDITY 6 - We see several photographs of a nude woman (exposing bare breasts and buttocks) in seductive and suggestive
poses, and we hear about an amateur pornographer. A man forces another man and woman to get into sexual positions, he talks about what he
wants them to do (he has her simulate oral sex on the man) and he photographs them (we see a glance of the man's pubic region, we see the
woman's bare buttocks and a glance of her pubic region). A man and woman kiss and hug. A nude woman sits in a bathtub (we see her bare
shoulders and legs), and a man is bare-chested with a towel wrapped around his waist. We see photographs of a man and woman kissing and
caressing each other a few times. A man sits on a toilet with his pants and underwear around his ankles.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man slams through the door of a hotel room and threatens a man and a woman with a huge knife (the woman
is hit by the door and appears to have a gash on her forehead). In a nightmare, a man sees himself with blood gushing from his eyes. We
see slides of a retinal implant procedure. A man is chased by police and eventually he's surrounded by officers who have their guns
pointed at him. Two police officers barge into a hotel room with their guns drawn. A man takes photographs of another man's young daughter
and they are construed as a threat against his family. A car swerves in traffic and pulls off the road. A man pounds on and breaks a
camera in anger and a man pounds on the steering wheel of his car in frustration. We see many photographs with the face of one person
scratched off. A man talks about child pornography and taking pictures of children doing things that they shouldn't be doing. A man
watches a family unbeknownst to them. We see a couple of clips of a fighting video game on a television as a boy plays. A voice over tells
us that the term "snapshot" was originally a hunting term.
