[VIDEO ESSAY] A masterpiece by any standard, "The Last Picture Show" (1971) presents an emotionally apocalyptic reckoning of an America that has lost its way. The subtext-the film was made at the height of the Vietnam War - is hard to miss.

For the members of the New Hollywood, it was a briefly opened window on revitalized filmmaking and venturesome storytelling.

Peter Bogdanovich's 1971 movie is a coming-of-age story, a portrait of small-town Texas, and one of the all-time great American elegies.

Its portrait of a floundering community is the film's strongest virtue.

Peter Bogdanovich's eerie homage to olden times and movies, one of the key Hollywood films of the early 1970s, looks ever more crisply stunning and remote.

Em seu momento mais sólido como diretor (numa carreira que se auto-destruiria pouco depois), Bogdanovich cria um monumento à melancolia.

Director Peter Bogdanovich has seen Anarene, Texas, in the cinematic terms of 1951 -- the langorous dissolves, the strong chiaroscuro, the dialogue that starts with bickering and ends at confessional.

The Last Picture Show is competent movie-making and probably deserves an audience. But its predictability and its calculation mar it for me. The values seem to me to be more contrived humanity instead of the real thing.

Notre Dame professor Edward Fischer has said that 'the best films, like the best books, tell how it is to be human under certain circumstances'. Larry McMurtry did a beautiful job of this.

It's all fairly calculated, though Bogdanovich knows how to cast actors and highlight character turns.
