Dennis Hopper “The Last Movie” (1971)

This controversial movie is currently showing in Copenhagen. I can’t find the trailer for the movie (anyone?), but I found these fantastic photos on a blog and a pretty recent in-depth article in the Village Voice here. See you at the movies!

Most simply put, The Last Movie concerns the ill-fated production of an American western in Peru—which is to say itself. Most simply explained, the movie allegorizes the implosion of ’60s hopes. 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.
