Rating: 3/5 -- The rambling plot may resemble a lyric from a mawkish country song but the film-makers bring an engaging mix of tenderness and grit to the downbeat material. Full Review

Storytelling at its finest, The Motel Life is a deep reflection on the human condition and brotherly love. Full Review
Behind The Lens
Jan 7, 2020
The film is more downbeat than tense, interweaves animation sequences, and perhaps worked better in the original novel. Full Review
Times (UK)
Dec 31, 2017
Down-and-out Nevada stars alongside two of the screen's best young character actors in THE MOTEL LIFE, a wintry story of life on the margins.
Los Angeles Times
Nov 7, 2013
Rating: 1.5/4 -- A pedestrian, undeveloped indie clunker, its failure as a complete, satisfying story especially disappointing since the sibling relationship at its center could have been special with a better script. Full Review
May 30, 2014
Rating: 3/5 -- The whole thing is deep-down conservative and wetter than a Labrador's kiss. Full Review
London Evening Standard
Apr 4, 2014
Rating: 7.6/10 -- The Motel Life feels a little too down-in-the-dumps for its own good at times, but sparks of energy supplied by Hirsch and Dorff illuminate an otherwise dreary film. Full Review
