Poor Man's Grand Hotel
28 August 2000 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Film of different people and how their lives interact in the lobby of a film theater. One of the many forgotten films (though obviously--and luckily--not lost)that makes me wonder how it is decided what is released on video. This should be!
