Critic Reviews for The Last Thing He Wanted

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (53)

  • The Last Thing He Wanted seems so taken with its own intricacy that it manages only to trip itself up.

    February 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What makes The Last Thing He Wanted ultimately so frustrating (while also elevating it a few notches above its awfulness as a thriller) is the fact that there are things it does quite well.

    February 21, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • How does a director as stellar as Dee Rees go so thunderously wrong adapting a 1996 novel by the great Joan Didion, with a cast headed by Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck, and Willem Dafoe? Here's Exhibit A and the last thing any of us wanted.

    February 19, 2020 | Rating: 0.5/5 | Full Review…
  • On the page, the reader is transfixed by Didion's spare, sorrowful language. On screen, Hathaway's hard work can't stop the plot twist feeling silly.

    February 19, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I found the whole narrative confusing. Even if you can parse it out, it doesn't add up to a whole lot.

    February 15, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There's some overreach and muddle here - you wouldn't want a pop quiz on the plot - but "Last Thing" remains an intriguing, visually diverting piece, well shot by Bobby Bukowski.
