Ho­tel Artemis

The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

Star­ring Jodie Fos­ter, Ster­ling K. Brown. Direc­tor Drew Pearce. A cy­ber­punk vi­sion of the fu­ture is brought to life in this di­rec­to­rial de­but from Drew Pearce, who does his best try­ing to cap­ture yet an­other gritty world. The film cen­tres around a fu­tur­is­tic Los An­ge­les where bank rob­bers use the cover of civil dis­obe­di­ence to com­mit crimes. Over­all, it is a beau­ti­ful film, but lacks soul and soon be­comes just an­other style-over-sub­stance af­fair. Even the at­mo­spheric cam­era work doesn’t feel au­then­tic or orig­i­nal.
