A gang of outcasts and misfits live in a downtown Los Angeles fleapit, known locally as "The Million Dollar Hotel". When one of the residents comes to a grisly end, the hotel becomes the focus of a police investigation led by FBI hardliner, Detective Skinner (Mel Gibson). Every inhabitant of The Million Dollar Hotel falls under suspicion and as Skinner's investigation proceeds, the lines between murder and suicide, sanity and madness, become very blurred indeed.

In the extras Bono explains that he was standing on the roof of a hotel and wondered what it would be like to jump off. He gave this idea to a screen writer who wanted to start a film with a particular phrase. From this a plot of several mad people sharing a hotel was borne. It is meaningless drivel. There are some very talented actors in it and some very evocative filming but generally it is superficial uninteresting rubbish.
