It’s Friday, and time for gearing up for some movie watching this weekend, perhaps. Why not take this recommendation, a relatively short and sweet black comedy about a bunch of liberal arts students who invite right wing guests to dinner and then murder them?
That’s the straight forward premise to The Last Supper.
I’m a little mixed about recommending this film, but I rather liked it. I picked it up from the video (yes, it was a video store then) knowing absolutely nothing about it. Sometimes those are the best films. It may not be to everyones tastes, but its an amusing watch.
Most of the film is dialogue, but then that’s not entirely surprising. I think the premise itself sold the film for me, and the rather black comedy of it all. It’s a somewhat short watch, but that alone is not a problem, it hits about the right length given what can be done with the situation. It’s just somewhat amusing to watch the poor bunch of students dig themselves in deeper and deeper, and wonder how they’ll get themselves out of it.
The film trailer definitely shows the age of this one. But it’s from a different age really, one where trailers told you what you were getting yourself in for, rather than promising stuff or delivering all the laughs and good bits in the teaser. Look for Cameron Diaz as well …
