Consensus: Four Rooms comes stocked with a ton of talent on both sides of the camera, yet only manages to add up to a particularly uneven -- and dismayingly uninspired -- anthology effort.

Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader

The results are mainly awful, and even Roth got saddled with a mannered part that he can't comfortably play.

New York Times

The less said about this career-denting fiasco, the better.

Rob Gonsalves

Begins with two awful segments, which you'll want to fast-forward past to get to the third and fourth segments.

Emanuel Levy

Four of the hottest indie directors--Anders, Rockwell, Tarantino, and Rodrigues--miss a unique opportunity to display their idiosyncratic talents resulting in a tedious anthology in which 2 segments are inept, one barely decent, and one OK (guess whose)

Jack Mathews
Los Angeles Times

Sounds better than it is.

TV Guide

A ghastly train wreck of a movie, littered with the corpses of promising careers.

Time Out

They should have called this One Room and released it as a Rodriguez short.

Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle

The result is a batch of shrill, self-indulgent sketches that turn so wretched in spots you start to wonder if the filmmakers wanted them to be bad.

Cinema em Cena

O episódio dirigido por Taratino, que funciona como uma grande preparação para uma excelente tirada final, é memorável. Pena que temos que assistir a uma hora de besteiras para chegar até ele.

Okay, so fast forward through the first two rooms and this is a decent little short by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

Four Rooms is an enigmatic and so eccentric film that cobbles together the styling of many creative voices, all for a film that is deranged beyond recognition.… More
