A year after Franz Kafka's work had been translated from German into his native Czech, this experimental feature was full of Kafka's tone and style. The story is about Harold, an isolated figure in an overwhelming world of totalitarian bureaucracy. Harold tries to find the elusive Joseph Kilian, an old acquaintance, in Prague. When Harold stumbles across a state-run cat-lending store, he impulsively rents a feline for the day. Later, he attempts to return the cat and finds that the store no longer exists. Now with a furry companion, Harold continues his search for Kilian. Written and directed by Pavel Juracek, this 40 minute film effectively aims its allegorical shots at personality cults and the absurdities of a totalitarian regime. .

Just B (jp) wrote: 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.

Alex S (au) wrote: It's not good, which is sad to see since there are quite a few well-established actors in front of the camera and a powerhouse director behind it. Crackers tries to be one of these heist comedies, like a smaller scale Ocean's 11, but lacks any sense of wit or style and ends up being just bland and boring.
Chris W (mx) wrote: A year after the mess that was Father's Day Billy Crystal returned with another stinker and, while this one isn't quite as awful, it's still pretty stinkin' bad. Inspired by his experience meeting Andre the Giant during The Princess Bride, Crystal plays a third rate talent agent struggling to get by. While on assignment in Romania, he gets in a car accident and is saved by a gentle giant named Max who clocks in at nearly 8 feet tall (NBA player Gheorghe Muresan is 7'7"). Seeing a lot of promise in him, Crystal's Sammy tries his best to get Max into the big time, and salvage what's left of his failing career and life. As you might expect, there's a lot of hurdles to get through, and of course, being a scheming weasel, Sammy has some tough lessons to learn about life and humanity. This really could have been a sincere, earnest, and good film. Unfortunately it's handled with little subtlety, originality, and nuance, so the end result is really trite, predictable, and cringe worthy. As a dramedy it's really not all that funny, and the dramatic elements more often than not fall flat and come off as disingenuous and unearned. I'll admit that the Catholic jokes at the monastery and the stuff with Steven Seagal worked and were funny, and I liked a few of the dramatic bits, but overall this was fairly insufferable. I hated the gawking, the obvious routes the film went, and the generally exploitative nature of the proceedings. I felt bad for Muresan, and hope they paid him well for all the stuff done at his expense. Had there been a stronger script, better execution, and a lot more tact, humanity, and heart, then yeah, maybe I'd be on board here. But instead this is shameful, dull, and has almost nothing worthwhile to offer.

I don't know if this is true or not, but I DO believe the Church as we know it is hiding something.
