Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Upon his release from a seven year prison stint, aging petty criminal Mick and his lifelong pal Tommy check into Los Angeles' seedy Golden Eagle Hotel. It doesn't take long for a prostitute to end up dead. Stars Ann Magnuson, Natasha Lyonne, Vinnie Jones and James Caan. Special DVD features include behind-the-scenes, director commentary, interviews with director and cast.

Amazon.com

Over the course of a long night at a decrepit L.A. hotel, a cross-section of equally decrepit people live out their desperate, dead-end lives. This is the jaundiced vision of director Adam Rifkin, best known for the raucously enjoyable Detroit Rock City and the cult curiosity The Dark Backward. He's corralled some good people for this low-budget offering (Natasha Lyonne and Ann Magnuson as hookers, Vinnie Jones as a cruel pimp), but the lion's share of screen time goes to a pair of small-time crooks (Donnie Montemarano and Vinny Argiro) planning to split for Vegas in the morning. It's diverting for a while, but the bleached-sepia look and unrelenting rancidity take their toll, grinding the picture down. Even a soft-shoe shuffle for Fayard Nicholas (of the awesome Nicholas Brothers), a grace note if there ever was one, can't lift the movie out of its determined sense of gloom. --Robert Horton

The characters, the environment, the lighting, the filth...it's just great. This is a film where the story briefly leads your imagination onto the more optimistic side of life but the reality and circumstances surrounding that sense of "being alright" suddenly violate your expectations. Watch it.

The story of two men who have been friends since childhood. Separated for the last seven years, their individual plans for the immediate future are as diametrically opposed as the U.S. State of Florida and anywhere else in the civilized world. Yes, that's a shot at Florida, because there is very little difference between The Golden Eagle Hotel and then State of Retirement and Death (FL).

Meant to be a brief stopover befiore starting their new, "straight" lifes together (not meant in the "gay way," but as in lawful citiizens without crime). That commitment goes haywire and the plans go to hell in a handbasket.

There is a considerable amount of black humor mixed into the blending of depraviety, disappointment and depression. Unless a person has witnessed this style of life by living it, I can't imagine how an innocent, inexperienced person could understand the characters (as developed)and the lifes they lead. This is really a true depiction of a particular level of society. Sad as it may appear, it's truely sadder when experienced first-hand.

Well written, well directed, well acted and well produced. Well, well, well... I Liked It!!!

To those who have not seen this movie,be warned.The subject matter of this film is dark but well written.It has a sense of realism that anyone can identify with and not always see the people in this preconceived notion that blinds us.To those who love movies where things don't always have a cut and dry happy and realize that even best of people don't always make the right choices,this is your film.

Little known, most entertaining movie on DVD in 2.35:1 widescreen. Night at the Golden Eagle pulls no punches and though it was made on a rather low budget it certainly delivers the goods. A very dark depressed atmosphere is created almost from start to finish and unlike most 5 star classics you probably would not want to keep in your dvd player for more than a play at a time... Still this DVD is a must for the collector of classic films. Watch it with the director commentary on after you have watched it regularly and you will get a great, incredibly interesting in depth perspective about the making of this rather unique, contemporary classic.

This fatalistic drama entertained me from start to finish. Although some might dismiss it as another low-budget B-flick, its best moments contain the stuff of a film noir masterpiece.

Its plot centers on an evening in the life of a flabby middle-aged Golden Eagle Hotel resident --a reformed ex-convict who saved up most of his modest salary as a janitor (during several crime-free months of frugal living) to finance a move to Las Vegas, where he plans to move up in the world by becoming a legitimate professional card dealer. (Part of his temporary job at a nearby adults-only live peep show is to routinely mop-up the semen deposited on the floor by its customers.) His plan includes sharing his move to Nevada with a violent (also middle-aged) convict friend who had been released from prison that same evening. The reunion of the two friends starts on a hopeful note but eventually implodes through its dysfunctional interpersonal chemistry. There is also an engaging subplot about a seemingly innocent teenaged runaway being groomed for prostitution by a sociopathic, British-accented pimp and his street-wise (but compassionate) hooker.

The movie's filmic technique is harsh: i.e. grainy and contrasty. One can almost smell Los Angeles' urban decay as the glaring colors of everyday street life are displayed along side the gritty brown-and-sepia tones of the Golden Eagle Hotel's grimy interior. This seems appropriate as the ex-convicts, pimps, hookers, johns, elderly tenants (and corpses) who populate the hotel have all led harshly desperate lives.

While its deservedly R-rated content is not for everyone, I believe many would find this relatively short (87 min) film highly entertaining.
