Four Rooms (1995)

Director(s): Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino. Cast: Valeria Golino, Madonna, Lili Taylor, Jennifer Beals, Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Kathy Griffin, Quentin Tarantino, Marisa Tomei, Tim Roth, Bruce Willis. 98 min. Rated R. Comedy.

Being a Tarantino-lover, I revisited this funny 4 episode movie after more than 10 years. People don't get famous for nothing. I still thought Rodriguez and Tarantino's episodes were the most delightful, Bandaras still stood out by far among the others, and Madonna still needs to do us all a great favor and leave acting for good (She hasn't acted since Die Another Day! Success!). But the element that grabbed my attention this time, was Tim Roth, who is superb as "Ted the Bellboy", the cornerstone of all four stories. Roth's versatility throughout his career has been quite impressive.
