HOTEL AMERICA (1981)
Deneuve is beautiful as always, but I just couldn't get over what an asshole Gilles was. I guess that's the point of the film, but it's too frustrating to be enjoyable. Here this guy hooks up with the most beautiful woman in the world and he gets so butthurt over the fact that she still has a place in her heart for her dead ex that he sticks out his bottom lip and lays in bed for days(!!!) not eating and when she tries to be nice to him he jumps up and starts slapping her around! What the fuck?
Technically HOTEL AMERICA looks fine and the acting is good, but it's just not my cup of tea. Maybe you'll enjoy watching these two cold, disconnected lovers more than I did.
