The Last Movie

Dir. Dennis Hopper. USA, 1971. 1h 49m. Starring Julie Adams, Daniel Ades, Richmond Aguilar, John Alderman, Michael Anderson Jr., Donna Baccala, Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, Kris Kristofferson.

Hopper’s directorial follow-up to Easy Rider starred the actor as a disgruntled stunt coordinator on location in the Andes Mountains growing disillusioned with filmmaking. This rebellious masterpiece, from a visionary artist at odds with the industry, emerged out of a chaotic drug-fuelled shoot in a small Peruvian village.

'Edited with a jarring, lyrical style, the movie has more in common with the psychedelic midnight movies of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, like Alejandro Jodoworsky’s “El Topo,” than anything produced by a major Hollywood studio.' Eric Kohn, IndieWire
