For the first thirty minutes, this picture takes a solid premise and runs with it. Unfortunately, the momentum eventually flags, and The Last Supper meanders through an unnecessarily-protracted middle segment.
The problem with movies like The Last Supper, about 20-somethings with lots to talk about and nothing to do, is they try to cut a wide creative swath through biting satire, poignant darkness, and aesthetics and come up far short on all counts.
It's tautly helmed by first-time feature director Title and well-acted by the able cast, particularly Vance and Annabeth Gish. But the film runs into trouble by quickly exhausting its one idea and by taking too long to get to its inevitable conclusion.
This impressive debut feature by Stacy Title has its wobbly technical moments and one or two underdeveloped narrative strands, but it's brimful of provocative ideas and moral dilemmas as well as being extremely funny.
