Movie Info

Downtown Los Angeles, sometime in the 1950′s. Nighttime. A detective checks into a hotel across from the train station and waits. He knows it's simply a matter of time before the gangsters he has stolen from come find him. He has played his hand and come up short. He's broken his own rules. He's as good as dead. On his last night on earth, long past the point of caring, he meets as series of characters: a singer trying to become a better person, a salesman with a secret, a gambler with an attitude, a chambermaid full of dreams. The past keeps crashing into the present and the future - if such a thing ever existed - is but a vague rumor. This is the world of Hotel Noir. -- (C) Official Sitemore

Critic Reviews for Hotel Noir

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

To succeed as more than a study in artifice, a film - especially one steeped in fatalism - needs to feel real.

A first-rate cast and stunning black-and-white visuals aren't enough to make this homage to classic film noir successful.

It's hard to know whether Sebastian Gutierrez is imitating or satirizing the hard-boiled noirs of Hollywood's past, but either way it feels like a botched attempt.

The film's weakest link is Rufus Sewell's rumpled gumshoe, inarticulate and mumbling to the point of madness.

Top Critic

You never lose the nagging sense that you're simply watching a high-school drama club's production of '40s fatalism chic.

Top Critic

Gutierrez bathes in moodiness while remaining unconcerned with anything so pedestrian as dramatic cohesion.
