Movie Info

The story begins in New York City on Thomas' final tour in 1953 -- a tour that was meant to save him from ruin. The Welsh poet's reputation for heavy drinking and philandering would soon be forgotten as eager audiences are captivated by his poetry lectures. Full of poetry, passion, and an ultimate betrayal, the poet who gave us Do not go gentle into that good night, Under Milkwood, and stories and broadcasts such as A Child's Christmas in Wales and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog, rages, loves and fights against the gathering darkness. One day at the local White Horse Tavern, he drinks 18 double scotches, naming each one after his life experience. Soon his fantasies, his memories, and an uncertain present blend into a wild, surreal farewell to the world.

Critic Reviews for Last Call

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Last Call is a pretty grim watch. Not 'gorgeously grim.' Just grim, end-stop.

November 25, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It was so talky and tedious. The drunken posturing, the besotted ranting -- those get old really quickly.

This is a long slog through a very dark time at the end of Dylan Thomas' life.

November 20, 2020 | Full Review…

A noble idea that might have worked but the patchwork structure, repetitive point scoring and wasteful diversions become increasing frustrating.

December 6, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Even playing to the rafters in what is overall a brutally self-indulgent portrait of the artist as a man hastening the inevitable end of his downward spiral.

December 3, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Although the movie runs for about an hour and 48 minutes, it can feel longer because it's like spending a day in a bar... till, hanging out with drinks -- even those who achieved legendary status -- seldom proves enlightening.
