A delicate, immensely moving elegy about jewels in the trash, love amidst suffering, fraternity in poverty.

An absurd comedy set in an LA flophouse...

The kind of kitchen sink included disaster that Wenders has demonstrated he will make more often than not.

It plays like a sop thrown down by a genius who imagines his every pensée is both precious and engagingly satirical.
Janet Branagan
Apollo Guide
March 27, 2001
Doesn't live up to its name, nor to the promise of big-name stars like Gibson, Bono or Jovovich.
Full Review | Original Score: 63/100

Turns out to be almost as shabby as its name.

If you're tired of feeling numb, The Million Dollar Hotel is a great place to check into for a couple of hours.

It is probably asking too much of this phantasmagoria that it make sense.

If you're looking for a defining Wenders image, try starting with the gloomy angels in overcoats in Wings Of Desire.

Pretends to be obscure, but is really just another murder investigation yarn.

An exercise in whimsy.

If any of these characters were half as resonant as Wenders appears to think they are, the film might have seemed charming instead of merely stranded.

No amount of window dressing can cover up the vacancies at the heart of this Hotel.
Alexander Walker
London Evening Standard
February 7, 2001
A film that feels, sounds and looks like a back number.

David Stratton
February 7, 2001
Audiences partial to this rather rarefied material will find plenty to enjoy in the technically polished production, but those not on Wenders' wavelength will be seriously alienated.

Will lead to a rapid exit for everyone but the diehard Wendersian.

The script that Nicholas Klein has conjured from Bono's idea is a quicksand that sucks down a solid cast.
| Original Score: 0.5/5

There's a vacancy in The Million Dollar Hotel, and it's between Wim Wenders' ears.
