Wenders is one of those previously coherent cult directors who's reached the point at which he thinks he's accomplishing something by horsing around with his friends.

Self-indulgent and boring; mature teens only.

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 pense 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.
March 5, 2001
Turns out to be almost as shabby as its name.
February 23, 2001
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.
February 7, 2001
A film that feels, sounds and looks like a back number.

Will lead to a rapid exit for everyone but the diehard Wendersian.
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.
February 7, 2001
No amount of window dressing can cover up the vacancies at the heart of this Hotel.
February 6, 2001
The script that Nicholas Klein has conjured from Bono's idea is a quicksand that sucks down a solid cast.
February 2, 2001
There's a vacancy in The Million Dollar Hotel, and it's between Wim Wenders' ears.
February 2, 2001
Pretentious, indulgent, tiresome exercise in star-strutting and seediness.
