The Last Supper

Tucson Weekly

DIRECTED BY: Stacy Title

REVIEWED: 05-16-96

It wouldn't be fair to blame all of this dog of a movie's failures on Annabeth Gish, but it isn't a bad place to start. Last Supper opens as a promising attempt at social satire as a group of five liberal arts graduate students try to reason their way through, literally, getting away with murder. They start with Zach, a red-blooded, white trash patriot who soundly thrashes them for not being willing to stand up for their beliefs. "You mean we're not willing to die for our beliefs," says Gish derisively. "No," says Zach. "Dyin's easy. A cause you're willing to kill for, now that's somethin'." From this early success the movie spirals into stupidity from an overdose of melodrama: Inviting extremists to Sunday dinner for death by debate really should seem like a lot more fun. It may not stimulate much discussion on social consciousness, but it will undoubtedly alter your opinion of tomatoes.
