The single finest moment in The Last Days of Disco comes at the end, during the credits... The scene is alive and exciting, and I wish there were more of that in the movie.

Even the most promising characters turn out to be shallow and often hateful, their stories meander interminably.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

A squawky, self-satisfied bore that isn't likely to get anyone's toes tapping.

In its last hour, the picture becomes more clumsy and tiresome, but the stray laugh and the disco sound keep it pulsing.

Trouble is, the dancing is usually more interesting than the pretentious things these characters have to say.

For the most part it's completely forgettable.

With a total of three films under his belt in eight years, Stillman is already self-referential.

Stillman is a talented filmmaker who knows how to avoid most cinematic cliches, and is eager to show human nature in all its amusing weakness, but he seems to be enchanted with some pretty wretched people.
Wade Major

Offers little beyond the usual Stillman prattle.

For a film about the flame-out of a flashy era, The Last Days of Disco is just too languid and verbose.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Stillman's third and most indulgent installment of his autobiographical trilogy ... smirks its way through the early '80s disco heyday.

[Stillman] nails his characters with perfectly heard dialogue and laconic satire.

The combination of sharply-realized dialogue and infectiously energetic dance sequences keeps The Last Days of Disco from losing steam.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Joseph Jon Lanthier
Slant Magazine
August 25, 2009
The focus of The Last Days of Disco is a psychologically authentic and painfully parasitic female relationship.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
Christopher Long

Stillman skips the snark in favor of a sincere appreciation of his slightly lost characters.
