Storyline

Producer Samuel Booker has acquired the remake rights to a Russian "noir" movie. He has also acquired the services of writer-director Nicholas Crawley to translate the Russian version into an updated thriller. Ultimately actress Elizabeth Seitz is cast in the part. For her it is the role of a lifetime. Delving deeper into the role Elizabeth becomes obsessed with the Russian model for her character. An eerie madness ensues that turns the making of the remake into a suspense thriller in and of itself. Written by Bruce Pittman

Well crafted and fascinating film
20 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Last Movie is one of those rare films that gets into the heads of actors. The character of Elizabeth, who is about to play the part of a femme fatale in a remake of a Russian noir thriller, is played beautifully by Elizabeth Gondek. To play the part she must get inside the head of a murderess and apply her own life to the part. It is done with great subtlety and the results are a curious madness that kept me fascinated. The overall writing and direction by Bruce Pittman is beautifully crafted and kept me guessing with all its twists and turns. The recreation of the original Russian noir film is totally convincing. Nataliya Alyexeyenko as Nastya captures the spirit of Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice and Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity. The lighting and camera work by Rick Wincenty perfectly recreates those fabulous films of the 40's, smooth and flawless. The Last Movie is a very different kind of thriller with the visions of classic noir blended with a modern story. Hope to see more from Bruce Pittman.
