[Writer-director] Caleo isn't able to sell The Last Time -- not the affair and especially not the ludicrous twist ending.

Feels like a script that was written backwards, as if the twist ending occurred to [writer-director] Caleo first and he then filled out a story to get to it. Fair enough, except getting there in this case is just no fun.

Strives for contemporary noir in tone but feels closer to an ineffective parody of James M. Cain filtered through faux David Mamet dialogue.

While his cast is first-rate, director-writer Michael Caleo doesn't know quite what his movie is about.

For all the good work that went into it, the movie is as phony as a game of three-card monte.
May 15, 2007
Akin to hip-hop culture's misappropriation of Scarface as a tale of gangsta empowerment, writer-director Michael Caleo crudely latches onto the surface misanthropy of David Mamet's work to fuel his forgettable first feature.
