The Million Dollar Hotel ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ein heruntergekommenes Luxushotel in Los Angeles birgt im Jahr 2001 einen Mikrokosmos gescheiterter Existenzen: Fixer, Prostituierte, Gescheiterte, Verrückte, Einsame, Alte. Aus ihrer Mitte ist einer ermordet worden. Zumindest vermutet die Polizei, dass es sich bei dem Tod eines Malers nicht um Selbstmord gehandelt habe. Die Ermittlungen eines FBI-Agenten laufen zwar ins Leere, leuchten aber die geschlossene Gesellschaft filmgerecht aus. Ein nach furiosem Anfang von großer suggestiver Bildkraft zunehmend enttäuschenderer Versuch, deutsches Autorenkino mit amerikanischen Leinwand-Mythen zu verschmelzen. Statt sich auf eine kammerspielartige Dramaturgie einzulassen, verliert sich der Film immer mehr in nebulöser Universalität. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 2000/2001 (CD-ROM)
