Brand New Digital Restoration!

An inspired experiment, The Last Movie is what the late Dennis Hopper considered to be his lost masterwork. Given carte blanche by Universal after the tremendous commercial success of Easy Rider, Hopper took the money and ran – literally – staging his next directorial adventure at farthest remove from the Hollywood beast. With an entourage in tow that included Kris Kristofferson, Peter Fonda, Michelle Phillips and director Samuel Fuller, Hopper made his way to Cuzco, Peru, to begin work on what would become a deeply personal, deeply scarring journey. Consciously self-reflexive, the script (co-written with Hopper by Rebel Without A Cause screenwriter Stewart Stern) the picture follows a Hollywood movie crew in the midst of making a western in a remote Peruvian village. Hopper’s camera lingers on the bloated decadence behind the scenes – American lust, stupidity and ego on full display.
