1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Poor Poor....., 10 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Hotel [DVD] (DVD)
This is a really bad film. I wanted to like it so much!!! but by the end I found I really didn't care. here are the good points...
Rhys Ifans is as hilarious as ever.
safron burrows is quite stunning.
There are some awsome shots/camera work. (handsomely shot on DV)
the acting is flawless. Considering the actors had no script to work with, they were amazing. Unlike TIMESCODE, what this film seemed to lack was any story. It opens with John Malkovich arriving at the hotel, and then sitting in a room with iron bars while the people around him eat human parts. I was blown away by this scene. The way the actors were just participating in this canabalistic ritual, (why was John Malkovich seperated behind bars?), acting just like they were having a regular dinner was amazing.
from here on, the film seems to lose any story whatsoever. Like I said, the acting is amazing. Even David Schwimmer from the ever so awful FRIENDS proves he can act. I would recomend it to budding actors, but if you are after just a good film in general, this is not the one. And as for the comment from the previous review about how some people will just pass it off as artsy rubbish, I would have to disagree. It is incredibly artistic, just a really bad film.
