Critic Reviews of "The Last Picture Show"Village VoiceMarch 02, 2015
At first glance, the movie is a faithful and skillful adaptation of the source, but a second look at both the film and the book reveals some interesting divergences.New YorkerMarch 02, 2015
It's plain and uncondescending in its re-creation of what it means to be a high-school athlete, of what a country dance hall is like, of the necking in cars and movie houses, and of the desolation that follows high-school graduation.Time OutMarch 02, 2015
The scene where Sam imparts his wisdom to young buck Bottoms may be the saddest, loveliest moment in 1970s American cinema. And that's saying something.Time OutSeptember 27, 2011
It's meant to make you feel sad for what's lost, but a vitality throbs through it.TIME MagazineApril 27, 2009
Director Peter Bogdanovich has seen Anarene, Texas, in the cinematic terms of 1951 -- the langorous dissolves, the strong chiaroscuro, the dialogue that starts with bickering and ends at confessional.VarietyJuly 18, 2007
Notre Dame professor Edward Fischer has said that 'the best films, like the best books, tell how it is to be human under certain circumstances'. Larry McMurtry did a beautiful job of this.Monthly Film BulletinMarch 02, 2015
It is difficult to know where to stop in listing the really outstanding performances -- Cloris Leachman, Ben Johnson, Timothy Bottoms, Eileen Brennan, et al.Times (UK)March 02, 2015
A sublime study of sexually charged ennui in a dying town in 1950s Texas.QuickflixOctober 21, 2014
The Last Picture Show is indeed one of the greatest movies ever made (although I hardly think the scorekeepers were waiting for my vote to come in before they declared it such).Common Sense MediaNovember 01, 2012
Classic American film has heavy themes and sex.ColeSmithey.comOctober 16, 2012
[VIDEO ESSAY] A masterpiece by any standard, "The Last Picture Show" (1971) presents an emotionally apocalyptic reckoning of an America that has lost its way. The subtext-the film was made at the height of the Vietnam War - is hard to miss.Slant MagazineSeptember 28, 2011
For the members of the New Hollywood, it was a briefly opened window on revitalized filmmaking and venturesome storytelling.
