Dale Wittig's rating of the film Hotel Room

Blackout, Teleplay by Barry Gifford: In 1936 a twenty year old woman and her twenty seven year old husband come to New York from Oklahoma to see a doctor in hopes of healing her ailing mind following the drowning of their son. Lynch does old Philco Playhouse style television as well as any of its older masters. It’s a shame they didn’t do it live. I’m sure Lynch would have relished the challenge of it.
