LA ÚLTIMA PELÍCULA / THE LAST FILM
r: Raya Martin, Mark Peranson, Canada/Denmark/Mexico/Philippines, 2013, 88 min.

 

 

Hvaljeni filipinski autor Raya Martin (Independencia) i kanadski kritičar i filmadžija Mark Peranson sarađivali su sa Alexom Rossom Perryjem (Krug boja / The Color Wheel), i sa Gabinom Rodriguezom, čestim glumcem kod Nicolasa Perede, na ovom grozničavom, estetski inovativnom, ponovnom osmišljavanju kultnog filma Denisa Hoppera Poslednji film / The Last Movie iz 1970. godine.

 

Tako Poslednji film spaja suludog i razočaranog američkog filmadžiju (Alex Ross Perry), i njegovog zbunjenog lokalnog vodiča (Gabino Rodriguez), u trenutku kada ovaj prvi snima psihodelični vestern u Jukatanu. Kultni mali film u nastanku kritički i romantično istražuje estetska račvanja prilikom prelaska sa filma na video, i primenjuje više formata kako bi stvorio alhemijski kolaž.

 

Smešten na sam rub majanske apokalipse, film zaziva zapaljivu atmosferu i borbeni duh američkog nezavisnog filma sedamdesetih, a kao hibrid činjenica i fikcije zariva se u pukotine naše raspadnute ere globalizacije, i ostavlja uljeza filmskih klišea iza sebe. Uz humor i strast, Poslednji film gleda unatrag i unapred u isto vreme, stvara onirični gest prema spasenju, iako razmatra i vlastitu propast. Da li je reč o filmu kao filmskoj kritici? Ili je u pitanju grozničavi, uvrnuti cri de coeur (strasni krik) za umetničkom formom koja je radikalno izmenila način na koji posmatramo svet?

 

Lauded Filipino auteur Raya Martin (Independencia) and Canadian critic-filmmaker Mark Peranson collaborate with Alex Ross Perry (The Color Wheel) and frequent Nicolás Pereda star Gabino Rodriguez for this feverish, aesthetically startling re-imagining of Dennis Hopper’s notorious cult classic The Last Movie.

Reimagining Dennis Hopper’s 1970 film maudit The Last Movie, La última películaaccompanies a disillusioned and delusional American filmmaker (Alex Ross Perry, director and star of The Color Wheel) and his bemused local guide (Gabino Rodríguez, frequent star of the films of Nicolás Pereda) while the former conceives, prepares and ultimately makes a psychedelic Western in the Yucatán. This cult curio in the making critically and romantically explores the aesthetic ramifications of the shift from film to video, employing multiple formats to create an alchemical collage.

Set on the brink of the Mayan Apocalypse and conjuring up the combustive atmosphere and combative spirit of seventies American independent cinema, this fact/ fiction hybrid delves into the fissures of our scattered, globalized era, leaving a host of cinematic clichés in its wake. With humour and passion to spare, La última película looks backwards and forwards at the same time, creating an oneiric gesture toward salvation even as it considers its own demise. Is this filmmaking as criticism? Or a feverish and wry cri de coeur for an art form that has radically altered the way we see the world?
