Acropolis Cinema presents La última película at the Los Feliz 3
January 13, 2016
La última película (Dir: Raya Martin and Mark Peranson)
Location: Los Feliz 3
Address: 1822 N.Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA. 90027
Los Angeles premiere!
Feverishly pillaging the depths of cinema history, La última película ingeniously reconstitutes the more mythical aspects of Dennis Hopper's infamous Hollywood disaster The Last Movie into a contemporary deconstruction of the artistic process and the vagaries of unchecked creativity. Starring Alex Ross Perry (director of Queen of Earth and Listen Up Philip) in a humorously self-reflexive role as a conceited, blindly ambitious filmmaker attempting to mount an elaborate production in the Yucatán wilderness on the eve of the Mayan Apocalypse, the film riffs lovingly on an entire lineage of cinephilic lore, and in particular Hopper's apocryphal persona as an acid-fried savior of his own conception in the 1971 quasi-documentary The American Dreamer. As versed in cinema's more arcane corners as they are the material aspects of the filmmaking process itself, directors Raya Martin and Mark Peranson--commingling fact and fiction as casually as they shift between a half dozen different shooting formats--paint the end of celluloid cinema not as elegy for a bygone era, but as an invigorating reanimation of a medium too often left for dead.
