The Last Movie was the result – an amazing milieu of cinema and the decade it was created in. Hopper is a stunt man and wrangler on a big budget western, with which Hopper infused the presence of Sam Fuller, Sylvia Miles, Henry Fonda, and Kris Kristofferson.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Horrible movie, amazing cast. Looks like it could have been good. In the drug haze that is this film there can be found some amazing moments. Pity Hopper couldn't pull it together. Perhaps next time I'll get massively drunk and and pop pills to watch this. I'm seeing so many stars/positive reviews I must be missing something.
This is the product of Universal throwing money at Hopper and telling him to do whatever with it.
The film is a complete mess, the occasional interesting scene can't save the other 95% of the movie.
I'm fine with a lack of plot, but at least give me some interesting characters that i actually want to watch.
Pretty much a waste of time.
One of the best cinematic messes of all time, along with one of my favorite films. Its recklessness, its ambition, and its total insanity make it an absolute treat. Closer to truth on film than most movies ever will be.
Our Daily Free Stream (...)Wir erleben ihn in einer ungemein pathetischen Szene, wie er sich wohl selbst sieht: Stoned, total verwirrt. Zu Hölle mit allem! Dennis Hopper als Regisseur dürfte in seltenem Einklang mit seiner Figur stehen. (...)
Hopper's meta-meta non-narrative is an impulsive exercise in seeing just how far you can demolish the method of film and retain any type of meaning, and that it does to great, infuriating effect. Apparently Jodorowsky encouraged Hopper to go balls-to-the-wall in the editing process, and it certainly shows. That there's any meaning in this movie at all is proof that film is a miracle mouthpiece of the human condition.
It's a mess of a movie but it's the kind of mess you can live with. Definitely worth seeing for Hopper's performance, the jumpy feel of the movie, the cinematography and the game of trying to figure out what's real and what isn't real.
