Critic Reviews for Last Night
'Last Night' is an empty exercise in sheer self-regard, a tedious, lifeless trawl through the secret lives of the rich and beautiful.
Last Night isn't for everyone. Like a troubled relationship, it's filled with infuriatingly irrational arguments and sulky silences, and its emotional impact may well be dependent on the viewer's own experiences.
The actors try their best to transcend the flimsy script and unappealing direction, but ultimately the movie offers a mostly hollow experience that delivers a night that you will struggle to remember.
A well-acted, intellectually ambitious and emotionally honest roundelay of enticement. The film stands out as a rare example of a work more interested in evoking universal thoughtfulness than telling its audience what to think.
Last Night develops into a provocative (if slightly anti-climactic) tryst.
Audience Reviews for Last Night
An honest though unimpressive movie with decent performances, especially Keira Knightley, who shines in this story of doubt, desire and betrayal. Still, it is too bad that after ninety minutes of slow build-up it simply doesn't offer a real pay-off.
Will be too slow for some, but I liked this movie. I think any one in a marriage who ever wondered what if? will relate to this. Definitely not a feel good, but well acted and thought provoking.
A rare movie in which the middle section is the most compelling part. Unsurprisingly, this makes for a ho-hum experience all together.
