The Million Dollar Hotel is a drama movie that was released in 2000. Directed by Wim Wenders, the film starred Jeremy Davies, Milla Jovovich, Mel Gibson, and other prominent actors. The story centers on a rundown hotel located in the heart of Los Angeles. The hotel houses a group of peculiar people, and most of them face challenging situations.

Tom Tom (played by Jeremy Davies) is an odd resident of the hotel who is in love with Eloise (played by Milla Jovovich), the girlfriend of his friend Izzy (played by Tim Roth). The movie begins with Tom Tom's friend Izzy plummeting to his death from his room's window. As the police investigate Izzy's death, Tom Tom takes it upon himself to find out what happened to his friend.

Meanwhile, a wealthy man called Detective Skinner (played by Mel Gibson) arrives at the hotel to investigate another crime. Skinner is interested in a musician who is staying at the hotel. The musician is believed to have recorded a song worth millions of dollars, which was stolen. Skinner takes an interest in the hotel staff and Tom Tom, who gets close to Skinner, hoping to find out more about his friend Izzy's death.

As the story unfolds, the characters on the screen reveal their unique stories, and the movie's many layers start to come to the surface. The Million Dollar Hotel is a movie about love, betrayal, and sacrifice. The film forces viewers to examine the difference between reality and delusion, and how one can manipulate the other.

The movie explores characters' relationships and the hotel's residents' complexities, making it a somewhat mysterious but highly watchable film. Despite being filled with quirky and mysterious characters, the film doesn't fall into the trap of ambiguity. It leaves enough clues to keep viewers intrigued, but not too many that they lose interest.

The performances in the movie are excellent, with Jeremy Davies, in particular, standing out for his portrayal of Tom Tom. He plays a vulnerable, odd, and sometimes even creepy character, but he makes it sympathetic, and viewers can't help but root for him. His performance gives the film an emotional core, which helps to anchor the more mysterious elements of the story.

Mel Gibson also brings his big name to the film and draws viewers in with his portrayal of Detective Skinner. He plays his character's darker side with ease, and his presence adds some weight to the film.

The movie's soundtrack is noteworthy, with a collection of unique and eclectic songs that help to set the mood of the film. It includes songs from the likes of Bono, Tito Larriva, and Brian Eno, among others, and helps to enhance the film's overall atmosphere.

In conclusion, The Million Dollar Hotel is a unique and mysterious film with an impressive cast and an excellent soundtrack. It's a movie that leaves viewers thinking and questioning reality, and it's well worth watching for fans of drama and mystery films.

The Million Dollar Hotel is a 2000 drama with a runtime of 2 hours and 2 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 25.
