The Last Supper


(out of 5)

A group of liberal singletons accidentally do away with their dinner guest (), a gentleman who has spent the evening blubbering endless racist and sexist remarks. Deciding that the world is better without him, the group buries him in their backyard and proceeds to invite more members of the human race with limited viewpoints (a homophobic priest played by , etc) and do away with them, making more burial plots in their backyard and planting tomatoes for every new cemetery guest. A tale such as this would be perfect as a black comedy with some sociopolitical underlying meaning to it, but Stacy Title’s direction is far too unsure to decide just what genre she wants her story to reside in. The acting is wonderful and the cast appealing, but the end result is completely unsatisfying (not to mention unappealing).
