A New Film From Wim Wenders

The Roxie Cinema is pleased to present the San Francisco premiere of Wim Wender's THE MILLION DOLLAR HOTEL, winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. VARIETY called THE MILLION DOLLAR HOTEL "a compendium of the director's lifetime themes and obsessions-the wallowing in American trash culture, a fascination with what's cool on the music scene, elements of faux noir in the HAMMETT tradition and a story in which lost souls seek redemption." Starring Jeremy Davies, Milla Jovovich, Mel Gibson, Jimmy Smits, Peter Stormare, Amanda Plummer, Gloria Stewart, Tom Bowar, Donal Logue, Bud Cort, Julian Sands, Harris Yuli, Richard Edson and Tim Roth, THE MILLION DOLLAR HOTEL was produced by Wender's Road Movies and Gibson's Icon Productions. Music: John Hassel, Bono, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno. Cinematography: Phedon Papamichael. Directed by Wim Wenders. Screenplay, Nicholas Klein, based on an idea by Bono, Nicolas Klein. Running time: 122 minutes. Nightly at 7:00, 9:20. Additional Wed, Sat, Sun matinees at 2:00, 4:30. Official Site German Site

"With a large, star-studded ensemble cast this dreamy reverie of a film, with its rapturously beautiful images shot by Phedeon Papamichael and its shimmering, seductive music composed by Jon Hassell, Bono, Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, recalls Wenders' "Wings of Desire" and its sequel "Far Away, So Close," but it is more demanding.. If you're a Wenders admirer and can give yourself over to his gorgeous verging-on-surreal vision, you can come away deeply moved. "
