The Last Picture Show: Director's Cut

5

Peter Bogdanovich adapts Larry McMurtry's novel, set over a year (1951-52) in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Texan town. Lovingly textured and beautifully acted by the likes of Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd and Ellen Burstyn, it's a stunningly shot, poignant rites-of-passage drama with a keen eye for social and sexual mores.
