Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Four Rooms is an unbearable quartet of stories written and directed by hot filmmakers Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction), Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi), Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging), and Alexandre Rockwell (In the Soup), which only proves that even the smart guys can really blow it sometimes. The anthology is linked by the hotel in which all the events are taking place, and by Tim Roth as a bellboy flitting from scene to scene. Nobody overcomes the insufferable air of self-congratulation that permeates this exercise in forced hipness. Others involved include Bruce Willis, Madonna, Lili Taylor, Ione Skye, Jennifer Beals, and Antonio Banderas.--Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Reservoir Dogs meets Desperado in a hotel 9 Mar 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Quentin Tarantino followed up the huge success of Pulp Fiction with this ensemble piece, that showcases the directing talents of fellow indie favourites, Robert Rodriguez, Alexandre Rockwell, Allison Anders, not to mention a star turn by Qunetin himself. The premise is simple, one hotel, one bellboy (Tim Roth doing his best Michael Caine impressions) and one hell of a New Year's Eve. Each director takes a section of the film and Roth manically dashs from one 'screw-ball' scenario to another. From Madonna and her coven of witches, to Antonio Banderas' trouble making kids, through to the grand finale where Quentin and Bruce Willis are stretched to their acting threshholds as hotshot young director and movie superstar respectively. As a film it is limited, but as four examples of indie film making, tied to together by lunatic performance from Tim Roth it makes for enjoyable viewing. Steve Buscemi was originally cast as the bellboy, but due to his turn as a bellboy in Barton Fink he turned down the chance and allowed Roth to take centre stage. Horribly under rated this is one for the fans and those that enjoy bizarre movies with no apparent purpose or plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars MESSY IN PLACES BUT ULTIMATELY ENJOYABLE 7 Sep 2006
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Four Rooms is a 1995 film starring Tim Roth as a bellhop who is working new years eve in a hotel,but this isnt going to be an easy night for teddy (roth).The film is written and directed by four directors hence the film is broken into four stories all which happen on the same night and all involving teddy.Each story is quirky,manic,over the top and camp in parts which teddy really invokes as his character as a really kenneth williams feel at times.

The first two stories pass by with some enjoyment but aint brilliant,the opening story involving witches who want to bring an ex witch back to life is ok,madonna excels in the role even if she is overacting but i would say that was a deliberate ploy by writer and director Alison Anders.

The second story which is written and directed by Alexandre Rockwell involves a case of mistaken identity which is ok again and there are laughs but its one dimensional in parts and runs out of steam in the end.

The film is saved by the two most respected directors of all in Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.Each of their stories involves the best scripts and the most laughs and the madness of the overall story is increased here.Rodriguezs story involves antonia banderas who hams it up as an eccentric father who asks roth to look after his two kids so that he and his wife can head out and then the laughs really kick in.

Tarantinos story is typical tarantino with a razor sharp script and great laughs courtesy of quentin who stars in his segment along with bruce willis,and it must be said that willis is excellent as a man that gets drunk and falls out with his wife because he wont drive home.

All in all this is a movie of four parts and not strictly a bonafide film and like me im sure you will love some of it and think the other bits are weaker but thats the gamble that the production company took,but its certainly worth investigating.

4.0 out of 5 stars and now for something totally different... 3 Sep 2004
By cjhop72
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is great fun!!! The plot of the first part is so crappy that's ridiculously funny, the second is a nice appetizer of the things to come for Tim Roth, the bell hop. Then serious business sets in as Robert Rodriguez brings Antonio Banderas in a superb intimidating character with a pair of children that unleash a hellish plot (a climax that will make you weep with laughter) and Tarantino's part builds up a tension for a great dessert. The Amazon reviewer forgot to put on the right AV channel...or has a narrow scope of interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny in places 21 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
This is a rather funny film in four pieces. Tim Roth is superb as the Bell Hop. Physiognomy and facial caricatures are hilarious! Accompanying soundtrack by Combustible Edison and Esquivel is superb too. All in all, Four Rooms is one for the collection and a must have for Tarantino fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars Four Rooms 1 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
Having just watched this film for the first time, I think a good way to describe it is to compare it to a gig. To start off there are two pretty irrelevant stories by two unknown directors which both leave you thinking 'what's this all about?', kind of like the support act. But they do set the scene for the second half of the movie, showing that Roth as the bellhop is having a real bizarre night. Then the headliners come in, Rodriguez and Tarantino, both producing hugely entertaining and enjoyable short stories which make you really pleased you watched the film. The performances by Roth, Tarantino and Jennifer Beals also help the job... definitely worth watching!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird but Wonderful 2 May 2009
Format:DVD
This film is chaotic, colourful and comic. Tim Roth steels the show and Antonio Banderas is at his comic best!! A collection of separate storylines cleverly brought together.

This film is the very definition of 'patchy'. It comes across like the directors responsible were just filling in free time between their real movies - which is probably true. Only Rodriquez's piece has any real merit.

Tim Roth plays the bellboy who is the link between all the stories and subsequently the main character. I think someone should have slapped him and told him to sort his act out. I love Tim Roth usually but here he was just way too over-the-top. If he had exercised a little bit of restraint, the whole film could have been improved. Instead, his overly exaggerated mannerisms really began to test my patience.Starting with "The Missing Ingredient" by Allison Anders is peculiar to say the least. Now peculiar is a good thing in my book, but after promising to be amusing this just goes nowhere. It's just bizarre.

"The Wrong Man" by Alexandre Rockwell unfortunately doesn't have the essentials to sustain it's segment. I think this is the piece most affected by Roth's overtly comic acting. If he had played it straight, maybe, just maybe, this situation might have come out alright. But it lacked any of the requisite tension or nervous comedy required. Like the first story, it just comes out ridiculous.

"The Misbehaviors" from Robert Rodriquez is the real standout. If I didn't know better I would have guessed it was by the Coen brothers - which is a compliment to Rodriquez - there are obvious parallels to Barton Fink. The climax is a simply superb culmination of black comedy and stylish camerawork. Antonio Banderas is terrific as the father of the two little 'misbehaviors'.

"The Man from Hollywood," while better than the first two stories, is probably the most disappointing, only because it's from Quentin Tarantino who I expected more from.
