    His comedies are fun but I thought his drama work far outstripped it.  His character in What Dreams May Come was heartfelt and moved me deeply.   And his Sy Parrish in One Hour Photo was as layered as an onion.

    Robin Williams...One Hour Photo. Performed in a role that was contrary to the actual man in nearly every single way.
