a deluge of righteous funk riffs from the funk-master Luis Bacalov
24 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

For some obscure reason most reviews of the profoundly entertaining 'Motel of Fear' (aka) 'L'ultima Chance' seem to be somewhat dismissive; which I find hard to understand as this is primo, Italian schlockball entertainment with solid performances from both fabio Testi and Eli Wallach as a couple of hardboiled crims on the lam. Admittedly Andress has always been a dud, and she certainly doesn't disappoint here; since a tin of congealed magnolia gloss could emote with greater eloquence; but, who cares; 'L'ultima Chance' is all about Wallach/Testi, and the deluge of righteous funk riffs from the grand master of euro-crime soundtracks Luis Bacalov. While much of the film does feel a tad familiar; this ultimately works to its advantage, as it's familiar in all the right manner of heady euro crime cliché. Good Times!
