The Night Listener (2006) ** out of 5 asterisks
Director: Patrick Stettner (The Business of Strangers)
Starring: Robin Williams, Toni Collette
A decent (although slow) psychological thriller right up until the ending. The performances by Robin Williams and the rest of the cast are solid, but it's not enough to salvage the movie from the disappointing ending. The film is based on a true story which even Hollywood couldn't glamorize enough to make the ending satisfying. Only recommended if you're fascinated with character studies in human psychosis.
