Arbelos Films' 4K restoration trailer for Dennis Hooper's The Last Movie (1971)

The film, written by Rebel Without A Cause screenwriter Stewart Stern, stars Hopper as a stuntman on a movie crew making a Western in a remote Peruvian village. He meets a woman and after the movie wraps and he decides to stay with her, and is soon enlisted by the locals to make their own movie minus the understanding that the action isn’t real.

Opens at the Metrograph in NY August 3rd, also scheduled to play at Los Angeles' American Cinematheque at a later date.



Ah, this film.  I came of age in the 70s, devouring almost everything that came along in those halcyon days.  Even I skipped this one.  Has anyone here ever actually seen it? Is it as bad as legend has it?

I was quite un-fond of it as well.  Whatever benefit-of-the-doubt I might have been extending them in the first third of the film (tenuous at best) was withdrawn at the terrible syncing of the 'white voices'.  That's the central conceit of the film, and you can't get it dubbed any better than that?  And the last act?  Jesus.

Pacing is also horrible.

mind numbingly so.  i left the theater surprised it wasn't an hour later than it actually was.

The film suffers from first-time-director-syndrome in a less than charming way, and eventually collapses under the weight of its own bullshit.

agreed.  it's Great Value michel gondry (to whom there's even a silly nod to).

I wish the sound quality were better on this video, but dear lord, I don't think I'm ready for whatever this is.

Following a reinvention, the band promises to release a "flood of material" this year.

Actually, I think I love the song at 37:20.

Arone vs Arone contains three songs you didn't know Buke & Gase made! Now you do! Released on the occasion of a SOLD OUT tour opening for The National across Europe, it is a brief sampling drawn from 5 years of woodshedding— a band reinvention that has, for the most part, taken place far from the eyes of an audience & the internet.

This is music they made on their way to making the music they’re now making. The release is a preparation for the flood of material Buke and Gase hope to release in 2018 — not just an album, albums plural.

How do you get good enough to play Carnegie Hall? As the saying goes: practice practice practice? This EP is a portrait of a band committing their 10,000 hours.

anyone else see this?

very much wanted this to be good, but i did not like this.  at all, almost.  broad, tepid "satire" that's haphazardly put together.  a few strongish moments strewn throughout what feels like an eternity of been there, done that.  suffers from the overreaching with and overstuffing of ideas that comes with most first films.  lakeith stanfield can do no wrong, armie hammer continues his streak of perfectly solid performances that will mostly go unappreciated, and that's about all i got for positives.

The plan is for Los Angeles-based Arbelos to mine the Cinelicious library it now reps to release both older and newer films. Also on its upcoming slate and Béla Tarr’s 1994 film Sátántangó.

Copy that.
I'll do my best to make only compelling posts that may invoke political-jamming, cooler-climated, filmic discussion.

A guy at my Ant-Man screening yelled "Blue Lives Matter" after a trailer for The Hate U Give. So, then the trailer for The Meg came on next, and I yelled "Shark Lives Matter" and then I was afraid that I was going to hit in the back of the head with a Maglite for the rest of the movie.

Everytime I see the figure of 12 dollars ( which is what is in my bank account right now )

Chris Rock in Dogma:

“know him? N**** owes me 12 bucks”
