The Million Dollar Hotel

a film by Wim Wenders

Somehow, I never heard about this film until last night. Once again, kudos to laSexta’s Todo Cine channel for showing it. Co-written and co-produced by Bono, of all people, the movie did poorly at the box office when released in 2000. It was not appreciated by the critics either, in spite of some top-quality acting, photography and music. Peter Stormare is great as an “ex-Beatle” Dixie, and his rendition of I Am the Walrus easily beats the 1967 original. One day I want to watch it again (with English subtitles, ’cause I didn’t understand half of things Tom Tom was saying).

Tom Tom (Jeremy Davies) tries to strike up a conversation with Eloise (Milla Jovovich). According to IMDb, the book that Eloise carries around is One Hundred Years of Solitude.
