If you are in the mood for a little black comedy, then this is the right film to watch. It's about the people who is currently living in this motel. The film interweaves between the main 3 storyline(a Waitress's entering to sexy film, a couple trying to get their child back & a husband looking for a new life) & the happenstance in between it.
It's definitely entertaining & with a good pace/flow; except for 3-4 seconds the Niagara Falls cut-in scenes, the falls was just too loud. It is Not too artsy nor horribly dark that you just feel sorry for them. It's better than the average film & lives up to the trailer; so if you like the trailer, then check it out.
