What to Know

Critics Consensus

Hotel earns a handful of points for sheer ambition, but they aren't enough to carry the movie over its steep pretensions.

Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Desson Thomson Washington Post Wears out its welcome pretty fast. Oct 3, 2003 Full Review John Monaghan Detroit Free Press Pretentious avant-garde comedy. Rated: 2/4 Sep 26, 2003 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List Not entirely successful, but unlike anything you've seen before. Rated: 3/5 Apr 17, 2019 Full Review Jason Gorber Film Scouts Its convoluted, highly allegorical story line will put off many. However, it is certainly a fresh and original take on digital cinema, and, for no other reason, it may be appreciated as a film stretching the very form of filmmaking. Rated: B+ Jun 21, 2007 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member I should have stopped watching this film when Jason Isaacs left the picture. This is a film so bad that Satan has banned it from being watched in Hell because it's too awful that even he wouldn't inflict it on someone. The lovely Salma Hayek is in this, but it definitely wasn't worth my time except to read on the IMDB message boards that this film totally ruins what's apparently a good play, "The Duchess of Malfi." Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Surely one of the worst, if not THE worst, movies I have ever seen. A boring, incoherent, pretentious pile of sh*t. The presence of Julian Sands and David Schwimmer in the cast says it all. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The opening scenes with John Malkovich showed promise,the rest of the film sucked.No script,no direction,baaaaaaad acting.A total waist of time.Mike Figgas should be sued. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Star Studded cast in an experiment indy film. Well....the experiment failed miserably. The point was completely muddled. The storyline was like a splat: it started & then went in many different directions but leading to nothing but a dead end. Skip this and watch grass grow - it would be much more riveting. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible. Pretentios. One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I will never watch another Mike Figgis film. He has nothing to say and so disguises that with cheap camera tricks. Pure load of crap. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Love it, love it. Great film Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
