Dennis Hopper’s The Last Movie is heading back to cinemas with a 4K restoration


Kansas (Hopper) is a stunt coordinator in charge of horses on a western being shot in a small Peruvian village. Following a tragic incident on the set where an actor is killed in a stunt, he decides to quit the movie business and stay in Peru with a local woman. He thinks he has found paradise, but is soon called in to help in a bizarre incident: the Peruvian natives are “filming” their own movie with “cameras” made of sticks, and acting out real western movie violence, as they don’t understand movie fakery. The film touches on the ideas of fiction versus reality, especially in regards to cinema.

Dennis Hopper’s radical, much-mythologized lost masterpiece that almost ended his career is heading back to cinemas after almost 50 years!

Hopper was given carte blanche by Universal for his next directorial feature after the huge commercial success of Easy Rider so he went to Peru to get away from Hollywood. He was joined by Kris Kristofferson, Julie Adams, Stella Garcia, Peter Fonda, Dean Stockwell, Toni Basil, Russ Tamblyn, Michelle Phillips and Samuel Fuller.

Although it won a special award at the Venice Film Festival, The Last Movie would effectively end Hopper’s career for many years – the Hollywood establishment gleefully writing him off as a self-indulgent madman.

The Last Movie opens in US cinemas with a new 4K restoration on 3rd August 2018.
