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

If you're a Wenders admirer and can give yourself over to his gorgeous verging-on-surreal vision, you can come away deeply moved.

The most interesting thing I've ever seen [Mel Gibson] do.

Longtime Wenders fans will undoubtedly welcome the affront to conventional storytelling while others, attracted by the marquee value of Mel Gibson, are more likely to leave the theatre scratching their heads.

Despite its ramshackle structure, The Million Dollar Hotel is festooned with enough odd trappings to keep it enjoyable.

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.

Doesn't live up to its name, nor to the promise of big-name stars like Gibson, Bono or Jovovich.

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.
