"Peter Bogdanovich's 1971 ode to a Texan small town is still a masterpiece whichever way you look at it. Unmissable."

— Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"The scene where Sam imparts his wisdom to young buck Bottoms may be the saddest, loveliest moment in 1970s American cinema. And that’s saying something."

— Tom Huddleston, Tom Huddleston

"The Last Picture Show becomes an adventure in rediscovery -- of a very decent, straightforward kind of movie, as well as of -- and I rather hesitate to use such a square phrase -- human values."

— Vincent Canby, New York Times
