I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I’m about to express are that of my own & some of yours, I’ve seen movies that have had their fair share of good and bad moments and always I found something enjoyable about them. What I just saw had me having this reaction. (Cut to James with a blank background as he screams into a backpack for thirty seconds! Cut to James in his office.) Yeah people, this one as much as I tried to give it a fair shake always somehow, it did everything in its power to throw it away!

  1. DeCourville asked me to review this one as well. I found the whole movie to be wildly inconsistent — the main character clearly has a great love and passion for science, yet his motivation is to become an actor. How does that make any sense at all?
    The main villain has the power to induce suicidal depression, which would be a surprisingly good foil for a hero who never grew out of high school and feels like he hasn’t accomplished anything since graduation. But the filmmakers took that premise and made it into a broad self-referential comedy. It doesn’t work.
    Oh, and the character whose every line is a masturbation joke. Fucking kill me.
    If these filmmakers had played to their strengths and leaned into their limits, they could’ve made a fantastic college comedy in the vein of Animal House or Van Wilder. Instead, it’s just 80 minutes of pain. I salute you for suffering through it.
