‘The Last Movie’: Dennis Hopper’s Misunderstood Masterpiece Deserves a Second Chance — And Now, It’s Getting One

After "Easy Rider," Hopper directed a movie that nearly destroyed his career. At long last, it's getting a second chance.

The Last Movie is Dennis Hopper's lost 1971 Golden Lion winner. It was written by Stewart Stern (Stern had written Rebel Without a Cause, in which Hopper played a small role along side his hero and friend James Dean), and directed by Hopper, who also plays a horse wrangler named after the state of Kansas. Dean Stockwell, Peter Fonda, Henry Jaglom and Michelle Phillips join Hopper on this Peruvian expedition into the chaos and excess of Hollywood, old and new.

Plots aren't always important in Hoppers world, but the story with in the film, with in a film goes something like this: A film shoot in Peru goes badly wrong when an actor is killed in a stunt, and the unit wrangler, Kansas, decides to give up film-making and stay on in the village, shacking up with local prostitute Maria. But his dreams of an unspoiled existence are interrupted when the local villagers start killing each other by re-enacting scenes from the film for real because they don't understand movie fakery...

The movie won the Critics Prize at the Venice Film Festival; despite this, it failed financially and critically after a two-week run at New York City's Cinema 1 (Contrary to some sources, including statements by Hopper himself, the film did play in other theaters across the country after its New York premiere, even playing at drive-ins under the name Chinchero.) Owing to its resulting demise, Hopper did not direct again until 1980's Out of the Blue.
