A masterfully filmed story about a very peculiar hotel and a few criminals sucking everyone around them into a dangerous whirlwind. I was entranced and didn’t notice the length of the movie. It doesn’t even seem to use any of the modern filmmaking techniques, as it tries to fit the style of the 60s, the time when its story is happening. Add to that memorable characters and great actors, and you’ve got a great film. It could even be perfect if the plot, otherwise very convincing, didn’t have a “deus ex machina” moment. Still, I enjoyed it a lot, and even took away that drugs are bad for you.
