Hotel Monterey

Hotel Monterey ★★★½

Admirable in both theory and execution but kind of a tough sit at a full hour.

Maybe this is heretical, but I couldn’t stand a full hour of silence, so I listened to Keith Fullerton Whitman’s Lisbon and Tim Hecker’s Norberg while watching this. Not sure either suited this film super well, but Lisbon’s ever-surging sound contrasted starkly and interestingly with the movie’s stillness.
