The main premise of the film - indigenous natives enacting a movie-making ritual - is based on Dennis Hopper's experiences while filming The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) in Mexico, in which he observed the locals doing the same thing. Hopper originally wanted to shoot in Mexico, too, but the production was finally moved to Chinchero, Peru. See more »

The biggest problem with viewing The Last Movie is that it actually has two parts.
The first part of the film where the citizens of a Peru village try to duplicate (for real) the violence of a western that has just been filmed in their village raises some interesting question (some put forth by the town's priest).
The problem is at a critical point for the main character (the only member of the crew to stay behind) the movie suddenly and without warning shifts gears into the second part which can best be described as 'the making/behind the scenes of the Last Movie.' Worst yet this part of the movie doesn't have any rhyme or reason in the order in which things are shown so it can be a confusing 5 minutes before the viewer figures out what has just happened. And even after the poor viewer does figure out what has just happened trying to follow this part of the film is next to impossible as it is so disjointed.
It is a pity as the premise of the film is a good one and if the film had stayed with that premise it would have been a great film. Instead you have part of a great film followed by a disjointed mess.
