Bad Times at the El Royale is about a seemingly deserted hotel called the El Royale in Lake Tahoe. It’s split down the middle by the border of California and Nevada. You have the option of staying in either state — choose wisely. The film kicks off with a frantic Nick Offerman stumbling into a room at what we can only assume is the El Royale. The camera remains in one place as we watch him pull apart every corner of the room to bury a bag under the floorboards. Not long after, a man knocks on the door and shoots him in the head. These abrupt incidents are what push this sly noir into Pulp Fiction territory. Much like the bistate border in the El Royale, the story balances on a thin line for a crime thriller – occasionally tipping over the side into extremes that keep you on edge.
I avoided disclosing the surprises in the dark comedy/thriller which should be experienced with little or no insight. Goddard forgoes an elaborate plot twist for a straight-forward thriller that relies on character development. Good performances and the right amount of humor make this a recommended flick. Maybe they should have named this “Good Times at the El Royale.”
