    With the dull docmentary "Room 666," Wim Wenders wastes a valuable opportunity when he talks to several notable directors during the 1982 Cannes Festival.(However, Werner Herzog is fun to watch but you knew that already.) What he asks them is about the end of cinema which is the subject of a hack article every six months. Look, since you're reading this, you know cinema is not dead, thirty years later. And thirty years from now, cinema will still be thriving, even as it may look a little different and available for downloading directly into your brain at the Georgetown Metro Station.

    What's interesting is how the film-makers approach the question as they do their material. Godard uses each statement as a title card, between which he muses poetic in broadly philosophical, punctuated sentences. Herzog takes of his shoes and takes a walk through the very real ambiguities that give life to the medium and Spielberg takes endlessly about money.

    This Documentary takes a look to the future of film in the vision of the importants filmmakers. They talk about the evolution of the film, artistic movies and influences of new midias like the television and the videotape.

    Wim Wender's unusual documentary is an intresting piece of film making, where the interviewee is left alone in a hotel room, Room number 666. They have to talk about the worries around the domination of televison over the cinema. It's maybe not a theme that is so relevant today. Among the interviewee's we have over a dusin of filmmakers all with different opinions, either with a long or short aswar, some times a speech. Some are worried, some are not. Room 666 is an interesting documentary, maybe some thing I as a young filmmaker could make. I think it's kind of a releaf for the interviewee if he's or she's mind are free and not shy when he or she is alone and can give us their real opinion. Thumbs up!

    Interesting concept that is kind of a drag to watch, except maybe for Godard's long bit at the beginning.

    If a bit bland, this short documentary is fascinating both in content and approach. 26 years later, it is very interesting to hear such commanding voices as Godard, Spielberg, and Antonioni speculate on the future of cinema. Makes for great conversation.

    Certains n'ont rien à dire et d'autres refusent de jouer le jeu, mais les dix minutes de Godard sont très... godardienne! Pour notre plus grand plaisir!!
