The Last Picture Show


Dir. Peter Bogdanovich. 1971, 126 mins. New restoration on DCP. With Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd. Bogdanovich emerged as a great American director with this lively and haunting elegy for the West, for movies, and for childhood, a coming-of-age saga about three high school friends stuck in a fading Texas town in the 1950s. This black-and-white masterpiece was photographed by the great Robert Surtees, whose other credits include The Graduate and Ben-Hur.
