Hotel for Dogs

“Hotel for Dogs” is about as derisive a work that you can get without going down the “Alvin and Chipmunks” road where your hideous talking animals are designed with an in-built business strategy. But I’m a fan of taking things and making them better by changing their entire premise. This is the pitch for Harry Dean’s “Hotel for Dogs”.

“Hotel for Dogs” is a tense political fictional documentary that will make you re-examine the way you see people, and let you into a world you didn’t know existed.

And that world is the prison next to the Hague Court for War Criminals. This is the Hotel for Dogs. The film follows a series of war criminals waiting to be tried – and go through their last ‘free’ days before they become fully convicted criminals and are most likely to be locked away for the rest of their lives. Some are in denial and believe they will be found innocent of all charges, others are trying to come to terms with the atrocities they committed. We also get delve into the minds of the guards and judges – those innocents who spend their lives surrounded by the dregs of humanity – the rare people that mankind feels that are should be better removed from the annals of history.

The film will touch on topics of sin, imprisonment, forgiveness, when you have gone beyond forgiveness and finally the blind eye that society has taken before to these people.

I think that’s about everything. I have a vague idea for characters, and I also have a plan for a sequel – “Hotel for Dogs 2: the Business of Evil”.

      Oh, I’m quite aware of the atrocity. It is purely because that film existed that I designed my film. Take something bad, and fix it.

        That works. 😀
        Now, you must tackle the Twilight series. Feel lucky Richard was not able to force you to go watch New Moon tonight. Seriously. Feel very lucky.

    I was pleasantly surprised with my level of enjoyment for Hotel For Dogs. I didn’t watch it for a long time thinking that it would be too childish, but then finally did, and was blown away. The animals were adorable, and extremely well trained. Definitely one of the better animal movies I’ve seen!
