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!!!

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.

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.

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.
