LACMA presents Tuesday afternoon screenings of classic films throughout the year as part of the Tuesday Matinees series. Every month features a distinct theme.
Consciously self-reflexive and co-written by Hopper and Rebel Without A Cause screenwriter Stewart Stern, The Last Movie follows a Hollywood movie crew in the midst of making a western in a remote Peruvian village. When production wraps, Dennis Hopper, as the baleful stuntman Kansas, remains, attempting to find redemption in the isolation of Peru and the arms of a former prostitute. Meanwhile, the local Indians have taken over the abandoned set and begun to stage a ritualistic re-enactment of the production—with Kansas as their sacrificial lamb.
1971, 108 minutes, DCP | Directed by Dennis Hopper; produced by Paul Lewis; written by Stewart Stern; with Dennis Hopper, Stella Garcia, Don Gordon, Julie Adams, Sylvia Miles, Peter Fonda, Henry Jaglom, Michelle Phillips, Kris Kristofferson, Dean Stockwell, Russ Tamblyn, and Tomas Milian
