Directed by Lawrence Schiller and L.M. Kit Carson | 1971

With Dennis Hopper

“A startling, candid portrait of a unique personality intersecting with a critical moment in cultural history.”
—The Atlantic

A mesmerizing portrait of one of the New Hollywood’s great enfants terribles, this long-overlooked documentary follows Dennis Hopper through the making of his dream project The Last Movie.  Produced in the wake of the unexpected, era-defining success of his directorial debut, Easy Rider, The Last Movie was a daringly experimental Western that found Hopper drifting further into eccentricity—and ultimately led him to box-office disaster. Directors Lawrence Schiller and L.M. Kit Carson chronicle him at his New Mexico ranch in the midst of his creative process, and also provide an inside look at his world of drugs, guns, and groupies. The result is one of the great unsung documentaries of the 1970s, and an unforgettable look at one of American cinema’s most iconic rebels.

New York premiere of new digital restoration.
