Jacob’s review published on Letterboxd:
Far more delicate than what I expected from a big-budget, star-studded release, Bad Times at the El Royale is s pretty great time. The multi-perspective structure is one you adjust to quickly, and once you do, it’s exciting to see all these stories woven together without ever feeling like an anthology. This is one big adventure full of colorful characters, and I was always curious where it would go next. Some of the flashbacks felt like unneeded weight, but honestly, I can justify them just because of how sick the match cuts were. The whole thing is just a great blend of tension, humor, and Dakota Johnson looking really good in high-waisted jeans.
