Director Brent Huff is known for his visually stunning set pieces and Last Will does not disappoint. The instant the camera is rolling you not only get what you want but something far better than you ever expected. Last Will is indeed a feast for the eyes. The Director of Photography, Andrew Huebscher shot the film with vivid perfection. Every scene looks as if it were a detailed painting.

Huff, a former thespian gives the actors room to move within a scene with grand results. It's wonderful to see Academy Award winner, Tatum O'Neal back on screen. Ms. O'Neal and Tom Berenger have an easy chemistry together. All the actors come with the goods with stand out performances by James Brolin, Peter Coyote, Shawn Huff and Patrick Muldoon.

The film maker captures the old money beauty and architecture of Kansas City with precision. Last Will drips with the overwhelming sense of danger, greed and corruption. The noteworthy costume design by Jayme Bohn gives the film a unique "blue blood" Midwestern flavor. It is obvious that Huff wanted the film to have an old fashion look that blends perfectly with the narrative. I wish more films were crafted in this sorely missed way.

Writer Alan Moskowitz loads the story with plenty of plot twists and turns that keeps the audience guessing until the very end.

Huff uses grand wide shots in the opening scenes of the film. By the time we get to the heavy third act the film maker changes to tight shots as if a noose was slowly tightening around our protagonist (O'Neal's)neck.

I highly recommend Last Will.
