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 Peruβ€”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.
