Editorial Reviews

The Last Hurrah is a comedy filmed in a single continuous shot. Set at a graduation party in Los Angeles, an eclectic group of brainy philosophy students, train-hopping hippies, aspiring prophets and drug-addled hipsters come together for one wild night. At the eye of the storm are three best friends, all with the same problem -- women. Jason can't get enough of them, Steve can't let go of the one he's got and Will can't understand them at all. The brainy grad students will have to work through their issues fast, because tonight's house party is their last crack at the women of the philosophy department. In the spirit of Richard Linklater and Woody Allen, The Last Hurrah is a smart, witty, ensemble-driven comedy that wonders if the over examined life is really worth living.

Format: DVD
Yes, this movie is actually filmed in one continuous 88 minute shot. I'm guessing there are probably hidden edit points, but this film is a pretty inspired feat of choreography and production design. With the one-take approach I was expecting an arthouse film, but The Last Hurrah is actually fast-paced, entertaining, and comedically timed like a Woody Allen classic.

The entire film takes place at a house party of graduating Philosophy students. Think of the party scene from Dazed and Confused, and you pretty much have The Last Hurrah. The camera follows the character arcs of a quirky ensemble cast throughout the wild events of a crazy party.

What distinguishes The Last Hurrah is its astonishingly honest performances from some very gifted actors. The writing is fresh, funny, and sometimes genius. And the continuous camera shot gives the viewer the intimate feeling of being a guest at the party (without ever making you seasick like Cloverfield). This movie is heartfelt, honest, and the mood stays with you for days.

The first 15 minutes of the film I thought, woah - this is indy. But by 20 minutes in I was completely seduced by the characters and engrossed in the story. If you are a fan of cinema, this movie is a unique gem and rewarding accomplishment. It has all the honesty of the mumblecore movement, but with a cohesive plot and a Hollywood ending. Kudos to the director, crew, and actors for pulling off an 88 minute shot.
