It is a fake Louis Vuitton as when noir is done right it is a respectably classy piece of work with some luxurious camerawork, high-skilled acting and exquisite directing. Hotel Noir believes it can simply capture the mood and feel of noir by giving us a monochrome palette and a couple of questionable female characters wanting to be femme fatales (none of them really are here). There isn't enough development here and the characters are all thinly-written ... and with voice-over narration (ugh!) by an extremely minor character (Danny DeVito - Twins), the film feels forced and fake. Hotel Noir gives its audience a series of stories that are all supposed to tie together in the titular hotel ... but the writers have forgotten to give us a character to like and/or root for. A guy (Rufus Sewell - 'The Wire') being a "good" detective isn't enough reason to like someone nor are damsels being distressed (Carla Gugino - Sin City / Malin Akerman - Couples Retreat) enough reason to honestly care about them either. Hotel Noir hopes it has a bit of a story but it doesn't really. It is rather boring ... even with a decent cast that also includes Kevin Connolly, Mandy Moore, Robert Forster, Michael B. Jordan and Rosario Dawson. You don't have to check-in to this Hotel ... find some noir done right instead.

Although I shouldn't really have expected much more from something like this. You have to wonder if anybody involved thought that they were making even a decent movie, or if they all just thought of it as an undeserved paycheck. As always, if I sat through the entire film, I gave it at least 10 per cent.

He told me this movie probably wouldn't be interesting to our class due to its lack of explosions. He continued to talk down to us, stating that it will prove to be too high brow for this audience although it is one of his favorites. I wasn't offended by this because I knew he was right. Surely enough, minutes into the film 3/4 fourths of the class falls asleep. I stay wide awake throughout the entire movie waiting, and waiting to figure out what it was that my teacher saw in it. I began to get angry at all the flaws I was recognizing. Now, I don't consider myself to be Gene Siskel, however I know a good movie when I see it. I'm not the average teenager that drools over Transformers, crappy romantic comedies, or cheap horror flicks. So when the movie FINALLY ended, I asked my teacher, What could he have possibly seen in this movie that no one else did?". He explained that he has seen all of Todd Haynes films, and he is a big fan of Julianne Moore. We got into quite an impassioned argument over this movie to the point that he was visibly shocked by my detailed criticism. Still, I was eventually dismissed because I "just didn't understand it". Well I believe I did get it, and more than that I believe this movie is among the most overrated I've ever seen.Safe, starts off gruelingly slow. We see scene, after seen, driving the same points over, and over. I get it, Carol's unhappy, she's sick, people think she's crazy. I didn't need to be shown this for 5 scenes in a row. Subtly is not in this movie's vocabulary. After being subjected to boring, pointless, and forced dialogue every time a character says anything. You can't help but wonder how anyone that isn't a devote masochistic would enjoy this movie. I understand that it's trying to make me feel uneasy, but there has got to be a better way than having all your actors speak in that terrible sudo-monotone whisper. I didn't find a single likeable thing about any of these characters, aside from the husband. I didn't have a dog in this fight. The only reason I found the husband likable is because he seemed just as frustrated as me. Anyway, I could go on for day, but I've got an English project to do so I'll end this review (If you can call it that) with this. If you're a Tarantino fan like me, then you probably won't like this movie. That's all.

(kr) wrote: A bleak philosophical noir that works almost in spite of itself. Hackman's detective goes through the motions of what he thinks a private eye should say and do, though he's caught up in a mystery he can't begin to comprehend. It's dark stuff, and Penn just barely manages to save it from becoming a depressing exercise in nihilism.

This film has beautiful sets indoors/outdoors, a well photographed image, with great Antiquity sets that look real. The acting is good. But it's a bit long, and a little confusing, otherwise this is a Classic Epic Sword and Sandals, directed by an experienced Sergio Leone who had previously worked on a few historical epic films, among them ; Ben Hur and Quo Vadis. A bit long, but worth it.

(fr) wrote: One of the best Laurel and Hardy films ever. Some seriously memorable scenes throughout...from Stan's giggling and laughing whilst trying to keep hold of a will to Stan and Ollie trying to break into the place with a mule and a rope and pulley. Famous for the 'Lonesome Pine' song and also the scene where the boys dance outside to a song called 'Commence to dancing'.
