Critic Reviews for The Last Resort

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

  • Sweet's work is a time capsule of a bygone era, preserved in glorious, saturated technicolor. He was the master of the unexpected composition, and in that sense, "The Last Resort" is a fitting tribute.

  • In 70 short minutes, directors Dennis Scholl and Kareem Tabsch skillfully pack their Miami Beach-centric documentary, "The Last Resort," with a wealth of visual, emotional, social, cultural and historical significance.

  • This affectionate, thoughtful and hugely entertaining movie begins as a documentary about the Jewish snowbirds who settled in South Beach in the 1950s and 60s. Then it evolves into something darker and more complicated than sunny nostalgia.

  • It builds a yearning to visit a vibrant, chromatic place in time that's 40 years gone.

  • The cultural transformation and re-transformation of Miami Beach (specifically its southern tip, South Beach) is a story that's fascinating, poignant, garish and, in some ways, befuddling.
