Movie Info

Stylish tale of a stunt man working on a western that's shot on location in Peru. He stays behind after the crew leaves, and discovers that the villagers are ritualistically re-enacting the making of the film--only they don't appreciate that all the violence they'd seen was make-believe. Legendary filmmaker Samuel Fuller appears as the western's director. Film debut of Kris Kristofferson, who also wrote the score. (Alternate title: Chinchero)

Dennis Hopper's The Last Movie is a wasteland of cinematic wreckage.

That sound you hear is of checkbooks closing all over Hollywood.

Top Critic

Film suffers from a multiplicity of themes, ideas and its fragmented style with flash-forwards intertwined.

Variety
Top Critic

One of the craziest (and druggiest) movies ever made, it's also blatantly self-deconstructing and meta to the max, albeit produced years before those terms became commonplace.

Top Critic

Dazzling, chaotic, indulgent.

Top Critic

My mind had a good deal of trouble tolerating the inflated pretensions of Hopper, who, it's now apparent, is gifted with all of the insights of a weekend mystic who drives to and from his retreat in a Jaguar.
