Pure Perfection

Dunston Checks In is nothing short of a masterpiece. The film is so dense with layers upon layers of meaning, so finely crafted and worked into the movie. The film's message is greatly abstract, but still somehow manages to stray away from being pretentious. The plot presents many complicated issues, and handles them with great care, making viewers question their own morals. The film is not afraid to present tough subject matters, and shows them in a light that perfectly indicates what the film is trying to say without trying to pander to a certain demographic, yet staying on the gray line. The film's acting is glorious, with an outstanding performance by Jason Alexander. Alexander absolutely pushes boundaries and shows the peak of his performance in an overwhelmingly powerful scene, where his character breaks down on the verge of tears. The cinematography is absolutely stunning, each shot has so much meaning, and without even saying a single word perfectly sets the tone communicates what is happening in the scene. It is difficult to put into words how magnificent this film is, so I highly recommend this film to those who have yet to see it. In short, this movie is a masterpiece. also the monkey is funny.

Wonderful adorable family flick

Centered around a hotel and a genius wild monkey befriending a boy. Very enjoyable even for adults! Jason Alexander is great too! Family films are a perfect landmark of heart and coziness.
