Hotel

Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

In Venice, Italy, a collection of strangers at a hotel vary from strange to corrupt to disturbed. A film crew from the U.K. is in the process of filming a take on the play "The Duchess of Malfi" by John Webster, while a documentarian records their work behind the scenes. A tour guide (Julian Sands) is hiding something. A call girl establishes herself as a hotel presence, and maids practice strange acts and behaviors. Meanwhile, an assassin (Andrea Di Stefano) frequents the hotel after jobs.

    Quite possibly the worst movie ever made.

    [font=Century Gothic]With "Hotel", director Mike Figgis cuts down on some of the same techniques he used in his previous experimental film, "Time Code", like multiple images and filming in real time(which works better in a thriller like "24", anyway). This time he comes up with something approaching a lucid narrative. The movie is about the production of a film version of "The Duchess of Malfi" in Venice under Dogme 95 rules(although technically you could not make a period piece under those rules...) by a maniacal director(Rhys Ifans) which is being recorded for posterity by a documentary filmmaker(Salma Hayek). [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Hotel" gets off to a good start but becomes incoherent about the time that Burt Reynolds shows up. There are several sex scenes which have no context and a mistaken identity subplot is never resolved. Michael Winterbottom did a much better job and had much more fun with with the similarly themed "Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story".[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]It seems like the large and varied cast is improvising much of the dialogue, giving actors including Rhys Ifans, Salma Hayek and Julian Sands free rein to dominate over everybody else. Surprisingly, David Schwimmer is the calm in the middle of the storm.[/font]
