Critics Consensus

Abel Ferrara's loving portrait of New York's Chelsea Hotel is less interested in telling the story of its famous residents than in exploring the magic of the place that housed so many moments in rock history.


As Hotel Chelsea, a New York City Bohemian treasure, faces a makeover at the hands of a new management company, filmmaker Abel Ferrara salutes the building's raucous past and formidable list of former tenants. Vintage footage, interviews and historical reenactments highlight the adventures of such luminous residents as Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia, Sid Vicious, Ethan Hawke, William S. Burroughs and Milos Forman.
