The Last Face Regissert av Sean Penn
It was hard to know what was worse about the film: its latent racism – the only actual black Africans we see are smiling children, raving lunatics with machine guns, and corpses – or the sheer ineptitude of its screenplay. It is obvious that Sean Penn cares deeply about the issues afflicting these war-ravaged parts of sub-Saharan Africa, but here his efforts to denounce crimes against humanity only result in a crime against cinema.

Even without its mopey, painfully on-the-nose dialogue and ponderous story, “The Last Face” sets itself up for failure with its premise, and Penn’s apparent inability to recognize it as such. It’s his worst movie.

The dialogue reaches such levels of awfulness that in the first Cannes press screening, the audience took to applauding the most ridiculous lines. It feels like screenwriter Eric Dignam just went ahead and ran with solipsistic poetry written while flying over a war zone in a helicopter. Penn does the script no favours by treating each exchange like it is the most portentous event in human history.
