The Million Dollar Hotel
The Million Dollar Hotel starts with a jump from a roof top that clears up a death in a hotel that was burning to the ground where a lot of strange people had been living. The film was made in collaboration with Bono and the soundtrack is also from U2.
Geoff Pevere If you're looking for a defining Wenders image, try starting with the gloomy angels in overcoats in Wings Of Desire.
David Stratton Audiences partial to this rather rarefied material will find plenty to enjoy in the technically polished production, but those not on Wenders' wavelength will be seriously alienated.
Charles Taylor There's a vacancy in The Million Dollar Hotel, and it's between Wim Wenders' ears.
John Anderson Pretentious, indulgent, tiresome exercise in star-strutting and seediness.
Jonathan Foreman Pretentious and trite in a way that you can get away with in a rock song or a music video, but that becomes almost unbearably irritating in a full-length feature.
Ernest Hardy Even alternative cinema god, Wenders, and rock's last great savior, Bono, are doing little more than recycling the material and cardboard people that Hollywood machinery has assigned as the harmless, loveable freaks.
Michael Atkinson Something of a monstrosity -- liquored self-indulgence taken to its own astral plane.
