Last Looks Screened for the first time in Poland and Portugal on December 2, 2021, although it has creative ideas in the first place, it has been marred by clumsy efforts to add heterogeneous social concerns.
The details of the film, the latest views, are revealed below
Charlie Waldo, a former Los Angeles-based detective and police superstar, has lived a simple life in the depths of a jungle and committed to a new lifestyle. He has promised himself that his belongings will not exceed one hundred. Charlie has left the modern world and left his profession and fiancé because of a terrible mistake he made in an old murder case. But his life is not going to go that way. Following a tragic crime in Los Angeles, he is offered an unsolvable case and disrupts the quiet and simple life of Charlie Waldo. Waldo is involved in the Ulster Ping case because of his ex-fiancé.
The Last Looks is a mediocre crime story full of the usual clichés of Hollywood fiction.
Charlie Waldo’s former fiancée Lorena Nascimento travels from Los Angeles to Waldo’s home, an old passenger van, to inform him of the case. Ulster Ping is a famous English actor of Hollywood descent. He is accused of killing his wife Manica. The rich Ulster, the militant aggressor, is often drunk and suspiciously rich. In a feature film, he plays the role of a wise judge, but attacks other actors behind the scenes.
This awful combination of behavior and personality makes him have no memory of the night of the murder. Ulster finds his wife’s body in the middle of his big house, and he himself is accused of the first-degree murder of his wife. Waldo is completely reluctant to travel, but since his ex-fiancé disappears after meeting them, he is forced to move to Los Angeles. A city that never thought to set foot there again.
The film’s Last Looks is set in Hollywood today and is based on the novel of the same name. One of the problems with movies made from books is the lack of time. It is rare for movies to be able to cover a book well and cover everything. One of the main problems Waldo faces is maintaining his minimalist lifestyle while solving the murder mystery in a modern, consumerist world. He has to choose between having or not having a gun and its bullets and a hundred valuable tools of his life. His attempt to find organic food without plastic packaging is another issue that is addressed in the book and gives a special depth and meaning to his character, but in the film, due to lack of time or the taste of the director and screenwriter, Waldo’s character is left out. Surface.
The acting of the male characters, especially Mel Gibson, Robert Friend and Charlie Hunnam, is fantastic, but the female characters are not covered.
As a film in which the first character has a minimalist and nature-loving life, the man who tries to minimize his carbon waste to do the least damage to nature could be more focused and effective in criticizing the consumerist society and promoting the nature-loving life. . But the film does not go beyond any of these values beyond Waldo’s character.
The Last Looks is a mediocre crime story full of the usual clichés of Hollywood fiction, such as chic criminals and cops, lavish environments, the quest for sex, and even glamorous gangsters. Just like any other crime film, it follows the same path and ends with an exciting revealing speech that clarifies the story for the viewer.
The last glances do their best to break the pattern of detective stories, but because it is based on the same foundations, it can not hit them much. Gould’s inexperience in screenwriting is fully apparent when we see how the film is filled with unnecessary scenes while it could have reduced some of those unnecessary scenes and, in turn, introduced us more to Waldo’s character and way of thinking. Occasionally, the film’s jokes and jokes seem out of place.
There are a few positives in Last Looks. Like the acting of male characters especially Mel Gibson, Robert Friend and Charlie Hannam who are fantastic but the female characters all seem remarkably unpaid.
In The Last Looks, it often happens that stories and events are left half-finished. For example, Waldo, even though he knows that the police are following him closely and is watching him, still reluctantly goes to a party with a gun, full of guns, and threatens everyone there. How can a person whose wisdom we have to rely on act so recklessly? Then after that, when the host threatens him that he has called the police, he continues to talk carelessly. But we never see the police coming, but we go back to Waldo’s house and see that he has just woken up. The film never reveals how Waldo escaped without encountering the police. This is the biggest problem of the movie Last Looks. But the film repeats this process many times. The characters make decisions and do actions that they know will have bad consequences for them, and these consequences are often mentioned, but suddenly the film is cut and we are thrown to the next scene without being shown what we were prepared for.
