A realistic and prime example of a coming-of-age drama, "The Last Picture Show" is as well-acted as it is emotional.

best nudity in any non-porno other than the godfather

A classic of its era.

Peter Bogdanovich perfectly recreated the look of early 1950s movies for this risque coming-of-age pic. Everyone remembers the pool party scene where Cybill Shepherd does an infamous strip tease on the diving board that's interrupted by Randy Quaid wearing a T-shirt tucked into his speedos.

I did not like this movie at all. There really wasn't a complete plot to this film and I felt the nudity was not necessary!!!!

An excellent, even paced film that delves deep into the happenings, daily life, and fabric of a small town.

"The Last Picture Show is everything. It is a coming of age story, a melancholy meditation on love, a period piece, a reckoning with the past, and above all, a character driven film classic.

Beautifully shot in black and white, this is a good movie with a great ensemble most notably Jeff Bridges, Timothy Bottoms, and Cybill Shepherd.

Bleak but brilliant. Small town life made to show how desperate it can make everybody. Amazing film.

So many live in purgatory. Every one a victim of time and place. Utterly heartbreaking. A time machine, A hypnotic experience, A masterpiece.

One of the best (and one of my personal favorite) slice-of-life tales. Through perfect use of subtlety, this movie captures the sense of aimlessness felt from locales that don't have any direction or opportunity with a wide range of characters clearly illustrating everything. Grim, gritty, and sad, this movie is expertly avoids melodrama, actively searching for hope in a place that offers none.

Film art doesn't and can't get more potent that it does here.

The coming-of-age tale about a small fading town inhabited by fading characters is a tragic, poignant film that is marvelously evocative in its atmosphere, its '50s period detail, and its remarkable performances.

Great movie. Love this movie.

This movie seems to want to make you feel sad for what's lost, but the vitality that throbs through it transcends this. Bogdanovich knew how to cast actors and highlight character turns. There are great actors like Ben Johnson, Timothy Bottoms and Ellen Burstyn. Cybill Shepard owns the screen as the manipulative temptress. This movie paved the way for some of the great realistic movies of the 70s (the golden, pre Star Wars era). Last Picture Show is a must see for any enthusiastic movie fan.
