Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "Transcending its roots, BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE emerges as its own thing." - 09/28/2018 Empire


"[I]t’s stylish, yes, and plenty atmospheric -- a cocktail that’s equal parts 1930s pulp fiction, ’40s film noir, and ’60s Technicolor, plus a splash of Stanley Kubrick’s 1956 THE KILLING -- with a phenomenal soul-music soundtrack and mesmerizing performances across the board from an all-aces cast." - 09/27/2018 Variety


"[A] vibrantly imagined feature, it's hard to tell which it will be....[With a] starry cast, dazzling design and handsome cinematography..." - 09/27/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"BAT TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE isn’t a deconstruction of the neo-noir genre so much as a structurally ambitious example of same." -- Grade: B - 10/10/2018 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 5 -- "Goddard, who wrote the script, had the good sense to hire a cast you’d follow anywhere. Jon Hamm is all kinds of slick as Laramie Seymour Sullivan, a hospitality salesman with his eye on a certain room..." - 10/11/2018 Rolling Stone
