    Description

    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.

    It is probably asking too much of this phantasmagoria that it make sense.

    If you're looking for a defining Wenders image, try starting with the gloomy angels in overcoats in Wings Of Desire.

    An exercise in whimsy.

    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.

    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.

    The script that Nicholas Klein has conjured from Bono's idea is a quicksand that sucks down a solid cast.

    There's a vacancy in The Million Dollar Hotel, and it's between Wim Wenders' ears.

    Name user

    Pretentious, indulgent, tiresome exercise in star-strutting and seediness.

    Name user

    There may not be anyone else who is as capable of romanticizing bummed-out good taste as Mr. Wenders.

    Name user

    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.

    Name user

    If you're a Wenders admirer and can give yourself over to his gorgeous verging-on-surreal vision, you can come away deeply moved.

    Name user

    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.

    Name user

    Something of a monstrosity -- liquored self-indulgence taken to its own astral plane.
