      william k Curious short documentary with an interesting idea is fascinating for its array of important directors and their views, but is generally, due to the temporal nature of the query, outdated. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Film makers talking about the future of cinema in 1982. Fascinating documentary. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review walter m With the dull docmentary "Room 666," Wim Wenders wastes a valuable opportunity when he talks to several notable directors during the 1982 Cannes Festival.(However, Werner Herzog is fun to watch but you knew that already.) What he asks them is about the end of cinema which is the subject of a hack article every six months. Look, since you're reading this, you know cinema is not dead, thirty years later. And thirty years from now, cinema will still be thriving, even as it may look a little different and available for downloading directly into your brain at the Georgetown Metro Station. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member What's interesting is how the film-makers approach the question as they do their material. Godard uses each statement as a title card, between which he muses poetic in broadly philosophical, punctuated sentences. Herzog takes of his shoes and takes a walk through the very real ambiguities that give life to the medium and Spielberg takes endlessly about money. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This Documentary takes a look to the future of film in the vision of the importants filmmakers. They talk about the evolution of the film, artistic movies and influences of new midias like the television and the videotape. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Wim Wender's unusual documentary is an intresting piece of film making, where the interviewee is left alone in a hotel room, Room number 666. They have to talk about the worries around the domination of televison over the cinema. It's maybe not a theme that is so relevant today. Among the interviewee's we have over a dusin of filmmakers all with different opinions, either with a long or short aswar, some times a speech. Some are worried, some are not. Room 666 is an interesting documentary, maybe some thing I as a young filmmaker could make. I think it's kind of a releaf for the interviewee if he's or she's mind are free and not shy when he or she is alone and can give us their real opinion. Thumbs up!
