to a place that grants wishes...
12 January 2019 | by dinaabatematteoSee all my reviews

'to a place that grants wishes'...reading that made me think of one of my favourite films Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker. Watching The Last Boy there were some similarities with Stalker but also Shamalayans's The Happening and the recent Birdbox.

Anyone expecting a blood and guts filled post apocalyptic gorefest will be disappointed but it's obvious from the tagline that it was never the writer or directors intention to make that kind of film and it certainly wasn't what I was expecting to see.

The Last Boy has a hopefulness and an innocence that the above films don't have (beautifully conveyed by the words of Rumi) , but that's not to say the dangers aren't real they are - both people and the lethal entity - in this case a wind that is visible and looks like a kind of wall of energy. In Stalker the entity never appeared - always at the periphery of the audience's consciousnes. In the happening it's the movement that belies the wind moving through the grass and trees. In Birdbox, well it's kind of visible sometimes and other times not. Each has its merits - personally I thought the wind in The Last Boy was very well done.

I enjoyed the film immensely. I can switch on netflix and find any number of bloody and violent post apocalyptic stories - not really my scene - but I can't do the same and find movies like this.

The film was very well cast with good performances. Luke as the sniper was very charismatic and really made the film his own, seems he works well with the director.

Read the words in the movies description and enter the world the director has created with that in mind and you won't be disappointed.

7/10
