Dennis Hopper came back from shooting in South America with more than 40 hours worth of footage. His final cut, after more than a year of editing (his editing antics were documented in a documentary called "The American Dreamer"), was incomprehensible to many of the studio heads. This was the last film that Hopper directed until 1980's Out of the Blue, which he took over directing after that film's original director left production. See more »
You know, I had fantasies like that, about being beat up. Did you ever have a fantasy about women beating you up? Or don't cowboys have fantasies?

There is nearly a full fifteen minute gap in between the first title card, "A FILM BY DENNIS HOPPER" and the other title card, "THE LAST MOVIE". See more »
This movie isn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. But I don't know how to recommend it, or to whom. Do you like Dennis Hopper? Well, here he is, in almost every scene, and he never looked better. A beautiful face, the graceful cowboy. In fact, he appears so genuine in this film that I begin to realize what an acting job he was doing in Easy Rider. The scenery is haunting, and the movie has a poetic, lyrical rhythm....yet sometimes seems to go on too long, and the mind wanders....but I loved the feel of it, the primitive environment of the Peruvian village, the ever-present mud....contrasted with the lewd and crude wealthy Americans. And I happened to enjoy the home-movie aspects of this film, also. I delighted in picking out Dean Stockwell, Peter Fonda, John Phillip Law, etc. in the Hollywood on Location shots....I loved the spontaneity of the last scenes of dialogue....hell, I loved seeing Kris Kristofferson sitting on a rock singing Me & Bobby Magee....but would anyone else?
