Critic Reviews for Hotel by the River
Hong builds the action into a framework of poetic premonitions that exude anticipatory danger.
Hong continues to find playful new ways of organizing his obsessions. He's got a natural genius for rearranging the furniture, and it makes a virtue of the fact that he's always working inside the same house.
As a forlorn kind of hangout movie, then, "Hotel by the Sea" proceeds at a pleasing shuffle, spiked with bittersweet humor and even a gentle, surprising hint of sentimentality.
A portrait of two souls coming to a reckoning - one with encroaching death, the other, in a less developed story, with life after a relationship.
It can be tempting, even from the outset, to read this hotel, this winter, these people, as a sort of purgatory. But wherever they are, these five have managed to remind themselves of love.
Where in other films the miscommunications with women are played for laughs that suggest they're merely bumps on the road to a later happiness, here they feel more fundamentally broken, with sorrowful repercussions that reach across generations.
