Three-part mini-series set during three different eras in a single room of an odd hotel where employees never age. Every story has a slight twist to it, but the stories are mostly dialogue-heavy psychological or relationship dramas.
A series of 5-minute line animations (drawn in the rough style and with the minimalist plots of David Lynch's The Angriest Dog in the World comic strip) featuring an angry and violent Neanderthal, and his family and neighbors.

Harry Dean Stanton,
The lives of several people spanning from 1936 to 1993 are chronicled during their overnight stay at a New York City hotel room. The hotel room undergoes minor changes through the century, but the employees of the hotel remain unchanged, never aging. Written by
Hotel room is not really a straight David lynch movie, it has three parts, set in different time periods, the first and last are directed by lynch. The first staring Harry Dean Stanton, this part is worth watching for the acting alone, but will be enjoyed by anyone who respects lynch's stylistic film making.
The second part is interesting and has a little creative flair, but is greatly over shadowed by the pieces lynch directs. It's good enough to not fast forword to the third part.
The last part which revolves around a couple stranded in a blackout, is based almost fully on dialogue. David lynch's genius comes out here, little light, and enough weird conversation to keep your mind working during the whole piece.
It's very easy to over look a little gem like this, do yourself a favor and check it out.
