David Lynch-like with less violence, karmic touch + fun, familiar actors
23 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cool little movie with an interesting bag of familiar actors--three of them dead now--i.e., Frank Gorshin (seriously underrated "Riddle-me-this, Batman!"); silky singer Lou Rawls (briefly plays a morgue attendant in this film); and character actor Stanley DeSantis (you know, the indie producer on "Entourage" and himself on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," to name just a few). TV buffs will recognize Hudson Leick (aka screaming psycho Warrior Queen on "Xena") and always-working-actor Sam Anderson (most recently, good little Bernard on "Lost" and big evil lawyer on "Angel"). The plot is twisted and turns in ways you don't expect. Some sex and some violence, but not quite over the top. Richard Lineback as the tarot-card-reading bartender is a hoot. This pic has moods and characters of a Lynch film without getting covered in gore. So don't fret about getting your face rubbed in the icky stuff under the rock (not that we don't love Lynch). At just under 90 minutes, "The Last Hand" entertains with sex, violence, and murder, then offers a finale with a subtle spiritual kind of message, albeit, some viewers might not "get" the ending. I liked it because it was different, weird, and it worked.
