    The Last Picture Show

    ★★★

    it was........alright. I loved the slow pace, the acting, and tone of it. I think its best moments were the smallest. granted this is almost nothing BUT small scenes

    I will say that I think there was a lack of depth ti Cybil Shepherd's character, and it brought down the film for me. She started strong, I like the sense I got from her of still being in love with a boyfriend she was rapidly outgrowing, and the new world…

    ★★★★

    film #2 of the Milwaukee Film Festival. i loved the tone of the movie, how it could be both very funny and very sad, sometimes in the same scene. the performances were also all spot on, especially Sam.

    ★★★★

    Of course, the real success of the movie is in the visuals. Every scene is a marvel to look at, and the artists did a wobderful job translating van goghs style to movement.


    The story is an interesting set up, built like something of a mystery, though it never comes 100% together, to elevate it from *interesting* to *compelling*. It does a good job of slowly painting a picture of who exactly van gogh was, and why he died, but could also have done more to invest us in the journey of the protagonist (real life van gogh subject armand roulin)
