Rating: 2/5 -- Ferrera's shaggy tone, which fits the iconic building, gets irritating. Still, if you come for the stories, you'll stay for the company. Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- Nostalgic and fun to talk about but not that much fun to listen to. At some point the dead will simply rest in peace. Full Review
Monsters and Critics

Unfocused and uninteresting documentary about the famous hotel for bohemians of all stripes.

Rating: 3/4 -- This is Ferrara's first documentary since 1977, and it has the crackbrained air of menace and the ferocious humor that mark his fictional works. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- It's a cheap, vicarious high to hear these unidentified denizens reminisce about the orgies and overdoses that seem to have been included with the rent.

Rating: 3/4 -- Chelsea on the Rocks rambles a bit, but it's a real slice of New York history that includes everything from Ethan Hawke recounting a hilarious story about Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller at the hotel to footage of the 9/11 attacks... Full Review

Product Description:

In this documentary, famed filmmaker (and native New Yorker) Abel Ferrara chronicles the history of a fading piece of the city, the Chelsea Hotel. The building has been home to legends such as Bob Dylan, Charles Bukowski, and R. Crumb, but its management is trying to make more money with richer tenants while the current artist denizens are turned out. A resident of the Chelsea Hotel, Ferrara recruits his current and former neighbors--including Milos Forman, Dennis Hopper, and Ethan Hawke--to comment on the changes. Actors Bijou Phillips, Adam Goldberg, Giancarlo Esposito, and Grace Jones help Ferrara re-create the building's fabled history, including the lives of infamous tenants Sid Vicious and Janis Joplin. CHELSEA ON THE ROCKS goes beyond the walls of the hotel, telling the story of a city in flux.
