The Last Picture Show 1.0 stars

Last Picture Show movie poster

Peter Bogdanovich's cardboard re-creation of smalltown life in the Fifties (Anarene, Texas, to be exact) is done with a plethora of time-capsule artifacts (hit records, books, movies, magazines, and fashions of the period), a multitude of stereotypes, a minimum of feeling, and a patchwork of diverse Hollywood movie styles (Ford, Stevens, Sirk). In a movie that's striving to be comprehensive, the pervasive sordidness looks more than just a little silly. With Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Cloris Leachman, Ellen Burstyn, Eileen Brennan, and Ben Johnson. 1971.
