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.

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.
