Movie Info

Scottish short film director David Mackenzie made his feature-film debut in 2002 with The Last Great Wilderness, the tale of two oddballs stuck in a sleepy Scottish town out in the middle of nowhere. The romantically jilted Charlie (Alastair Mackenzie) is headed to a remote location in the Highlands to burn down the house of the celebrity that stole his girlfriend away from him. On the way, he is forced to give a ride to a pseudo-Spaniard named Vincente (Jonny Phillips) who is on the run after sleeping with a violent thug's wife. En route, the car breaks down and the men are forced to stay at the Moor Lodge -- home to a group of similarly odd people that Charlie and Vince soon find themselves compelled to learn more about. The Last Great Wilderness premiered at the 2002 Edinburgh Film Festival. ~ Ryan Shriver, Rovi

A terrific example of how to make real cinema on a low budget.

Audience Reviews for Last Great Wilderness


What could have been a horribly cheap Scottish blend of Deliverance and The Wickerman, benefits from being an ensemble piece, compensating for its slightly straight central pairing by surrounding them with intriguing but essentially human eccentrics.

(****): [img][/img] I really liked this film but I realize that it is not for everyone. It carries the same mood/tone of a film like The Wicker Man but does not follow a similar storyline. Eccentric acting and beautiful Scottish countryside locations help out the film.


[url=""][img][/img][/url] After watching Young Adam by the same director I was expecting big things. I was disappointed. Not a bad film, just not good enough after seeing his first. The acting was okay, not great. The cinematography was poor inside, but fantastic outdoors. I wanted something great here, and was left wanting too much.
