LAST NIGHT AT THE ALAMO

Eagle Pennell, USA, 1983, Lewis Black Productions, Arthouse

“A cowboy movie, but it’s not a western.” -- Roger Ebert

In just a handful of films -- LAST NIGHT AT THE ALAMO, HELL OF A NOTE and THE WHOLE SHOOTIN’ MATCH -- Eagle Pennell lionized those laconic dreamers balanced between ambition and nostalgia who later became Austin, TX’s civic identity.

Eagle’s woozy testament to the comically disenfranchised is a self-medicating rodeo where the heroes ride barstools and pray they can hang on until last call. This legendary dog-eared hangout movie is from a script by Kim Henkel (co-writer of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE), and was filmed in B&W by Eric Alan Edwards (MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO.)
