“An overlong, pretentious homage to Agatha Christie (Ten Little Indians) Steven King (The Shining) and the TV film Helter Skelter, u0026quot;Bad Times at the El Royalu0026quot; is a generally tedious, disappointing, and ultimately gory portrayal of u0026quot;unlikable people acting badly,u0026quot; my personal worst form of cinema.nIndividual performances by Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, and Jon Hammx are brilliant, and some production values are excellent, but many of the quick cuts between past, present, future, and contemporaneous events are ill-conceived and anachronisms abound. Why are 1960s songs on a Juke box played on 78rpm records? Why is an impoverished singer driving a mint-condition classic 1951 Studebaker in the 1970s?nEvidently filmed in British Columbia, u0026quot;Bad Timesu0026quot; so far detached from objective reality as to be allegorical, if not incredible – requiring far too much suspension of disbelief and tolerance of gore to be enjoyable.”
