Critic Reviews for The Last Face
"The Last Face" is the worst kind of good-intentioned noble failure, one that muddles its message because it tries too hard to tell it.
Rarely has a movie felt so simultaneously inane, stultifying and offensive.
Sean Penn turns African strife into a two-hour perfume commercial with The Last Face, veering between gauzy impressionism and shrieky melodrama with his latest directorial effort.
Characters are undeveloped, dialogue is platitudinous and insincere, and even the leading roles are one-dimensional.
Audience Reviews for The Last Face
The jumps in time prevent us from getting closer to its characters, and it is easy to understand why so many people hated this film when we see a cheesy love story between a white couple made more important than what there is to say about the horrors that happen in Africa.
