New Rose Hotel
Provided by Metacritic.com
On the very edge of coherence -- but I find its decadent erotic poetry irresistible.
New York Post
It's moody and atmospheric. But with the exception of a few cool moments that remind you of Ferrara at his best, it's dull and written with little attention paid to basic storytelling.
Los Angeles Times
No place for literalists, but Ferrera fans should be pleased with this tale.
Christian Science Monitor
Quirky acting combines with Ferrara's dark, brooding style to give the throwaway story a noteworthy measure of dramatic and cinematic interest.
TV Guide Magazine
A painfully claustrophobic picture.
The New York Times
Affirms that soft-core porn is alive and well in cyberpunk.
The first two-thirds are turgid enough; in the last, Ferrara begins replaying scenes we've already seen earlier in the film.
What's on the screen is so dreadful that it inspires the ontological question "What are films and why is this not one of them?"
