Tsr Exclusive: ‘The Motel Life’ Interview with Directors Alan & Gabe Polsky

7 November 2013 8:06 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

In The Motel Life, Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff play two brothers, Frank and Jerry, who are living a lonesome country tune’s tale, with specific accents on their bad luck. When Jerry becomes involved in a hit-and-run accident, the two flee their Reno motel for some type of other home, continuing their existence as whiskey-drinking, fantasy-drawing vagabonds. Dakota Fanning stars as Hirsch’s fixation, Annie James, and Kris Kristofferson appears for a few scenes as their working-class daddy figure Earl Hurley. The Motel Life is based on the novel by Willy Vlautin.

Featuring two raggedy performances from the nicely paired Dorff and Hirsch, The Motel Life is a drama that functions well with its influences, namely the Coen Brothers’ romanticism of cold, bad luck, and bits of Paul Thomas Anderson’s own debut Hard Eight.
