Film noir

Reviewer: charles0207Date: 2018-10-25

This is an interestingly structured and engaging film noir. It has individuals' stories criss-crossing into each others lives at a strange 1950s hotel. The results are shattering. Well acted and great screen presence in all the parts.

It has been done before, and better. Lacks any new elements.


Reviewer: JillVKDate: 2018-10-18

We giggled, we gasped, we tapped our toes. A class act (unsurprisingly) from Jeff Bridges. Strong women, good tunes and a very pretty Chris Hemsworth, John Hamm in a terrible suit; damaged people who are not all what they seem. Loved it.
