Movie Info

In this unusual documentary based on a series of identical questions addressed to world-famous directors such as Werner Herzog, Steven Spielberg, and Jean-Luc Godard, director Wim Wenders placed each of his colleagues one-by-one in a single room, gave them one reel (11 minutes) of time to look into the stationary camera if they chose, and answer set questions. The juxtaposition of so many individualistic, experienced, and innovative filmmakers commenting on topics like television's effect on

Audience Reviews for Room 666 (Chambre 666)

Room 666 is an interesting historical film piece. I say that because it's basically pure speculation from a 1982 viewpoint. Basically, during a film festival, director Wim Wenders convinced a selection of attending directors to come up to room 666 to be interviewed. Each had one reel and 11 minutes and a set list of questions to answer. Some directors get it right, some get it wrong, it's fascinating to see who has 'Made it' since and who has disappeared into nothingness. Highlights include Godard's mumbled wisdom, Herzog taking his shoes off, Spielberg being right on the money and Paul Morrissey getting it completely wrong and showing himself up for what he really is. A great insight for real film fans!

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.
