Synopsis


The Million Dollar Hotel
Legendary filmmaker Wim Wenders returns to the screen with this loosely structured murder mystery. The Million Dollar Hotel unites Wender's obsession with cool music, lost souls, and American trash culture. Set in 2001, the film opens with Tom Tom (Jeremy Davies) taking a flying leap off the roof of the Million Dollar Hotel, an ironically titled dive in the seedy section of L.A. Told in an extended flashback, Tom Tom recounts the murder investigation of a down-and-out artist and son of a media mogul, Izzy Goldkiss (Tim Roth), who also fell off the hotel. FBI special agent Skinner (none other than Mel Gibson), sporting a neck brace, looks into the death only to discover that the building is teeming with weirdos and losers. There is Vivien (Amanda Plummer), who claims to be the fiancée of the rock star; Geronimo (Jimmy Smits), a huckster trying to make a buck by selling Izzy's abstract painting; Eloise (Milla Jovovich), a burned out prostitute with a passion for intellectual literature; and Dixie (Peter Stormare), who swears up and down that he is the fifth Beatle. As the film progresses, Skinner proves to be just as much of a freak as the hotel tenets -- he was born with a third arm that was surgically removed from his back. Just as in his Until the End of the World (1991), Wenders features a fantastic soundtrack including songs from Bono, Daniel Lanois, and Brian Eno. The Million Dollar Hotel opened the 2000 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

    Great Movie

    I really liked this movie. Jeremy Davies is genius in everything he does. This movie is somewhat intellectual and packed with dialog. It's not Fast and Furious action packed. It's a great novel set to screen. It's worth the 9 bucks. Most people with an IQ over 90 will likely enjoy this movie barring personality pathology of course.

    You are better off burning your $9 + shipping than buying this movie. How can a movie with Mel Gibson, Tim Roth and Milla Jovovich suck so bad..... Trust me, you would enjoy pounding your fingers with a hammer more than this movie.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
