CONTROVERSIAL LOST FILM SCREENS IN SAN JOSE 45 YEARS LATE

Unavailable to the public since 1971, THE LAST MOVIE screens with a new documentary about the making of the film

3Below Theaters and Cinema Club Silicon Valley will screen Dennis Hopper’s THE LAST MOVIE, largely unseen since 1971 but recently restored for a national re-release and the new documentary ALONG FOR THE RIDE, which explores the difficulties around making the film, utilizing interviews with industry notables and Hopper’s creative team.

After a grueling production in the Andes, THE LAST MOVIE opened to a whimper and Hopper became a pariah in Hollywood, despite the runaway success of his era-defining 1968 feature EASY RIDER. ALONG FOR THE RIDE makes a strong case for the artistic achievements of THE LAST MOVIE and delves into Hopper’s other cultural contributions.

A panel discussion held between the screenings will deal with the historical importance and increasing influence of THE LAST MOVIE, and why it was lost for nearly 50 years. Panelists include Nick Ebeling, director of ALONG FOR THE RIDE, and film critic Fernando Croce, a staunch supporter of THE LAST MOVIE, to offer more insights. Fernando covers international film festivals for outlets such as Film Comment and MUBI.
