The Last Picture Show, dir. Peter Bogdanovich, USA 1971, 118min., English, 15


Peter Bogdanovich’s adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s eponym novel has an aching melancholy for the love-lost unfulfilled lives of the older generation of Anarene, Texas – as embodied so poignantly in Cloris Leachman’s character – and the excited, fumbling, uncertain promises of the next – as portrayed with fresh faced unsophisticated energy by a trio of screen newcomers: Cybill Shepherd, Jeff Bridges and Timothy Bottoms.

Peter Bogdanovich’s first film as director is an elegy to cinema, shot in highly evocative black and white cinematography; a self-reflective homage to the passing of a certain kind of American cinema.
