An average movie

Since I really enjoyed ‘The Last Picture Show’, I thought I might as well check this rather obscure sequel. Well, this movie was the perfect example that  releasing a sequel 20 years after a stellar movie is not always a guarantee for success. First of all, I have to admit that it has been years since I saw ‘The Last Picture Show’ but I’m pretty sure the tone of this sequel didn’t match at all the tone of its predecessor. Another thing that bothered me was that, even though it was pretty neat that many characters came back for this sequel, I actually struggled to keep track on who was who and it didn’t help that so many names sounded so similar (Jacy, Sonny, Dickie, Shorty, Julie, Nellie, Suzie, Benny,…). Still, there were some interesting scenes, especially those involving Duane and Jacy. Indeed, I did appreciate the fact that they didn’t get involved romantically and it was also interesting that Jacy got along fine with Duane’s wife. Unfortunately, those were the only things I found interesting and the rest of the movie was just a disjointed mess. Furthermore, while these characters were quite fascinating in ‘The Last Picture Show’, they were rather boring this time around and I really didn’t care much for them. Anyway, to conclude, I think I was rather generous with my rating here but I guess it is still worth a look, especially if you enjoyed The Last Picture Show’.
