Critic Reviews for Room 314
Room 314 cracks open the door of an anonymous hotel room where, at different times, five couples navigate critical moments in their relationships.
A pageant of white heterosexual encounters of the inconsequential kind.
It's the movie's generic dialogue and weak acting that stand as its most noticeable attributes.
Its creative impulses are an empowering example of do-it-yourself filmmaking, even if its encounters are subtly nuanced as often as they are unnecessarily schematic.
Audience Reviews for Room 314
The acting is good here, but really, it's more of a character study than a movie. Nothing ties together, there's really no resolution, and the stories are unrelated to each other with the exception of the fact that they take place in the same hotel room. If you just want to see some good acting, this is fine, but if you need more than that, skip this one.
A little slow, a little quiet, but I like the idea of this movie. A couple of the stories in the room are sad or disturbing, but a couple are just adorable. I like that the happier stories are at the beginning and the ending of the movie.
I saw that no one from the RT Community or Top Critics had written a review for this film, so I decided to watch it and write one myself to sort of "take one for the team" or something. I see now why no one else had... There is literally no point whatsoever in actually watch this film unless you simply want to see the actors. Nothing occurs visually that requires or assists you by viewing it. In fact, after the first three room scenes finally passed, I played BubbleBreaker on my PDA and listened for nearly the rest of the movie with the occasional glance at the screen just in case. That was fruitless. This movie is pointless. It's not a "day in the life" kind of movie, it's more of a "few minutes out of a few couple's lives". The dialogue is tedious and seems forced. The conversations are of the kind you'd only ever experience if you were to happen to overhear them and because of that be glad you nor anyone that you know is like that. There is no time given to any character to give them depth nor to instill any sense of sympathy, interest, or concern for what happens to them. I once had a root canal that lasted about as long as this film and, really, had a better time with that because I at least wasn't thoroughly bored. Grueling, tedious, boring, pointless. Those are the kindest words I can summon to describe the experience that is Room 314. And make no mistake, I'm all for brief glimpses into other people's lives/day-in-the-life a la Young People F**ing or Dazed and Confused. Or, for "hotel room story" films, there is always 4 Rooms. Not this. Don't bother.
