Four Rooms

One mad New Year's Eve, an overwhelmed bellboy (Tim Roth) copes with witches and diabolical children, gets caught in the middle of a sour relationship and settles a bloody bet for members of a superstar's entourage. Madonna, Antonio Banderas and Bruce Willis co-star in this uncommon comedy like no other that features four stories by a quartet of hot directors: Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

The results are mainly awful, and even Roth got saddled with a mannered part that he can't comfortably play. full review

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Four of the hottest indie directors--Anders, Rockwell, Tarantino, and Rodrigues--miss a unique opportunity to display their idiosyncratic talents resulting in a tedious anthology in which 2 segments are inept, one barely decent, and one OK (guess whose) full review

Emanuel Levy, Variety

The less said about this career-denting fiasco, the better. full review

Janet Maslin, New York Times

Sounds better than it is. full review

Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times

Four Rooms asserts itself as a goof so laboriously and aggressively that you almost feel pinned back in your seat. full review

Hal Hinson, Washington Post

Four Rooms has to be one of 1995's major disappointments. full review

James Berardinelli, ReelViews

The segments are uniformly weak. full review

Desson Thomson, Washington Post

Four Rooms has been cut substantially since a disastrous September reception at the Toronto Film Festival, though it's hard to imagine it running any longer.

Mike Clark, USA Today

The four segments are widely different in quality. On the useful scale of the Michelin guides, one is worth a trip, another is worth a detour, and the other two are a colossal waste of bandwidth. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

The result is a batch of shrill, self-indulgent sketches that turn so wretched in spots you start to wonder if the filmmakers wanted them to be bad. full review
