The Last Supper Reviews

Cynthia Roberts's film is poignant and courageous, but its curious status -- a film of a play that seems to want to be a documentary -- muffles its impact.

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.

A vacuous black comedy set among frustrated liberals.

As the body count gets higher, and the housemates begin to question their high-and-mighty purposes, the movie stumbles under its sophomoric moral weight.

Great premise. Lousy movie.

Is it me? Am I losing my sense of humour? Have I forgotten what satire's all about? Nah. My disappointment with The Last Supper has more to do with how it screwed up on the details.

All the courses are here and so are the nutrients, but The Last Supper, nevertheless, is a less-than-satisfying meal.

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.

The Last Supper shows some darkly effective visual style, but it has none of the wit needed to save such a story from lumbering obviousness and sophomoric political debate.

This sour, repetitive fare fails to feed our hunger for either laughter or enlightenment. It's all empty calories and reactionary chic.
November 27, 2017
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.
January 1, 2000
A brave effort in a timid time, a Swiftian attempt to slap us all in the face and get us to admit that our own freedoms depend precisely on those of our neighbors, our opponents and, yes, our enemies.

The flick seems like a long and well-told joke; one that's enjoyable to listen to despite the lack of a truly resounding punchline.

It falls apart, but the cool cast and caustic script will leave most right-thinking people well satisfied.
August 26, 2002
Black comedy about the moral emptiness of all politically activated violence.
