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

Smart,, stylish film noir for contemporary audience
22 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought it was a beautifully crafted movie, a terrific genre film. I loved the overt use of "film noir" techniques. A lovely sense of style, lighting and camera angles. I loved the homage to some of the classics. It made us all feel smart.

I saw "The Artist" a few days later and they use film noir elements as the protagonist slides into depression but I think "The Last Movie" did a better job. I was totally convinced by the "Russian film" portions. It did an amazing job with locations. Nataliya Alyexeyenko's face and eyes were totally beguiling. The camera loves her. Elizabeth Gondek is not quite as compelling but she grows on you and is believable. It's very exciting when the two of them come together.

My only criticism is that the film did seem long, both overall film and pacing within scenes, especially later scenes. It is not bad in the first half of the film as it establishes style but then it just feels too slow as we approach the climax. In spite of this, I think it was a brilliant effort and a very entertaining film. Congratulations to the filmmakers. Keith Ross Leckie
