Movie Summary

Director:
Wim Wenders
Released:
2001
Rating:
R

The Million Dollar Hotel is the dramatic mystery thriller from legendary director Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Paris, Texas), from a story by singer Bono. The story takes place in a hotel that is filled with mental outpatients and society misfits who all have some delusion they are living under which takes up most of their lives. Tom Tom (Jeremy Davies, Saving Private Ryan, Solaris) was an innocent child-like person with no interactive social skills but being someone who gives away everything he has until there is nothing left. He is in love with Eloise (Milla Jovovich, The Fifth Element) but it is the love of a small child that is only looking for recognition and has only a slight sexual element. A stiffed back FBI man, played to the hilt by Mel Gibson (Lethal Weapon, Braveheart, Signs), comes in to investigate the possible murder of one of the tenants and upsets the delicate balance of this on-the-edge environment.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    A mellow dream of a movie that's an acquired taste. It's attractive because of the oblique way that Mr. Wenders ambles through a murder mystery that's stronger on characterization ...

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    A fantasy, a fairy tale, but its characters and the emotions they elicit become painfully real.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    If any of these characters were half as resonant as Wenders appears to think they are, the film might have seemed charming instead of merely stranded.
