The Motel Life Critics Consensus The Motel Life transcends its frustratingly uneven screenplay with some outstanding work from a talented cast. Want to see.
Super Reviewer. View All Photos Movie Info. Their only escape is through Frank's fantastic stories and Jerry Lee's rich illustrations. Everything changes when Jerry Lee is involved in a hit-and-run accident, which forces the brothers across the state to the home of Frank's old flame, Annie Dakota Fanning. While the two seem safe from the law, Jerry Lee's insatiability and all-consuming guilt render their future increasingly uncertain. The film features animation by Mike Smith.

View All Critic Reviews Aug 29, The dark indie drama The Motel Life is a macabre tale that's pointless and depressing.
Based on a novel, two brothers, Frank and Jerry Lee Flannigan, are a couple of lowlifes living out of motels and cars who go on the run after killing a kid in a hit-and-run. The film has strong themes of living in regret and brotherly love, but the characters are unsympathetic degenerates. Starring Emile Hirsch, Stephen Dorff, and Dakota Fanning, the cast is pretty decent; however their performances are bland and uninspired.
The directing is also an issue and is rather static; aside from randomly inserted animated sequences whenever Frank tells his brother a story. The Model Life is a largely forgettable film that doesn't really have anything to say. At times its appeal is irresistible.

Frank is lying passed out in his motel room in Reno when his brother bursts in, half naked and in tears, to tell him he has just hit a teenage boy with his Dodge Fury and killed him. A partial list of their provisions includes a pack of beer, a package of glazed doughnuts, a pint of Jim Beam and a bottle of Pepto-Bismol. And yet I kept reading, and I was happy I did.
Subsequent twists involve a shotgun, a prostitute and the Tyson-Holyfield fight, but the true pleasures of the novel loiter elsewhere. The relationship between Frank and Jerry Lee is sparely sketched, sometimes maddeningly so, but it has an undeniable self-effacing sweetness.
