Puffing For Pleasure And Its Fatal Reality, 31 March 2015
Author: Dalbert Pringle from New Zealand

For starters - Even though I thought that this 1999 documentary about the seduction of cigarette smoking verses the reality of cigarette smoking was quite competently produced, it was actually far too long for its own good.

With a full running time of 80 minutes, I seriously think that if a good 15 minutes had been axed from this time, it wouldn't have negatively affected this documentary's resounding impact one bit.

Directed by Kevin Rafferty - The Last Cigarette's format was actually quite cleverly presented.

Like a surreal collage of non-stop images featuring vintage TV commercials and film clips focusing on cigarettes, Rafferty interlaced these with the reality of a 1994 Supreme Court hearing where 7 reps from America's major tobacco companies were ruthlessly cross-examined by Judge Waxman, who demanded that these charlatans admit to the fact that smoking cigarettes does cause cancer.

Anyways - Even though The Last Cigarette was somewhat overlong, it was still well-worth a view.
