Critic Reviews

  1. On the very edge of coherence -- but I find its decadent erotic poetry irresistible.
  2. It's moody and atmospheric. But with the exception of a few cool moments that remind you of Ferrara at his best, it's dull and written with little attention paid to basic storytelling.
  3. No place for literalists, but Ferrera fans should be pleased with this tale.
  4. Quirky acting combines with Ferrara's dark, brooding style to give the throwaway story a noteworthy measure of dramatic and cinematic interest.
  5. A painfully claustrophobic picture.

Why do someNew Rose Hotel, I admit, is not actually a good movie (though it is). It lacks in dramatic tension and in substance, material. Why do some rate it up then? I do so for the style and the acting. I think you have to be a fan of Walken, Defoe, literature, noir, and enjoy looking at Argento red lit to be able to rate this one up. Full Review »
