Fancy-Less Film
13 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Trying very hard to Look like a Film-Noir with some On-Screen References that are Blatant, like the Femme Fatale signing the Guest Register as Kathy Moffett (Out of the Past 1947), this Low-Budget Indie is an Exercise in Style that is not very Stylish.

It doesn't seem to go to any length to be Visually Interesting. Sure the Old Hotel is there but it is just that, there as Backdrop to the Proceedings that Unfold, here we go again, Non-Linear, in such a Drab and Deficient Method that is almost Comatose. The Dialog is delivered as though Everyone, and that means Everyone, is Halting, searching for Words, and in a Dazed Stupor.

The two Male Leads do some Amazing Overacting playing not to Bright Characters, but the rest of the Cast (Brittany Murphy's last role) is Adequate enough, with the Director Delivering a Slow-Burn and Fancy-less Film.

This is all Leading to a, not-what-you-thought Ending, and is a Semi-Clever Wrap that is sort of Ho-Hum and will most likely leave Viewers with more Relief than Satisfaction.
