(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. In this edition, we take a look at some of the best movies you’ve probably never seen that feature the word “Last” in the title.)
A little movie called Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters this weekend, and while I don’t typically like to show off my box-office prognostication skills, I predict that it’s going to do pretty well. In fact, I’ll go out on a limb and predict it will end up the highest-grossing film featuring the word “Last” in its title. But does that make it the best? That will be up to each individual viewer to decide, of course, but having seen it, I’m happy to say it’s definitely in the top 20 “Last” movies.
As arbitrary groupings go, this one is home to several fantastic films. The Last of the Mohicans, The Last Picture Show, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Last Starfighter… the list goes on. They’re not all such well-loved classics, though, as some smaller titles have been lost to the shuffles of time. The Last Circus and The Last Wave are both worth seeking out, but I’ve included them in this column before as part of other categories. So the question becomes are there six more good to great movies that you probably haven’t seen with the word “Last” in the title? What am I, an amateur?
Keep reading for a look at six good to great – and otherwise unrelated – films you probably haven’t seen featuring the word “Last” in their titles.

I hope everyone here had a happy holiday break! I had the chance to finally sit back, relax aimlessly for a few days, and take in some Netflix Watch Instantly films that I wouldn’t get to during the normal course of events. One such film was Sweetgrass, which guest Matt Singer discussed on a previous episode of the /Filmcast. As I watched, I was struck with the film’s breathtaking beauty, and I realized that there’ve been some great-looking films this past year.
Here are what I consider to be the 10 most beautiful films of 2010. There’s no grand unifying theory to this list, other than that these are movies I personally really enjoyed looking at for one reason or another. They are presented in no particular order.
Oh, and tune in on Tuesday night at 9 PM EST at slashfilm’s live page to hear us countdown our top 10 films of 2010!
