I think this is a very undervalued and under-rated film. It's about two publishing assistants in the early 80s and how they fare at work, at home (they live together), in love and when they go out - to The Club. And they go out a lot!

I challenge any woman who watches this film not to see something that rings true from your late teens/early twenties - the girlfriend who has their sights on your man, the backstabber at work, the nightmare flatmate, the men that you can't help being attracted to even though you know they're no good! Fabulous.

Completing director Whit Stillman's 90s trio of urban comedy-dramas that began with excellent 'Metropolitan' in 1990, followed by Barcelona four years after, this utterly delicious shining strobe of a movie is my utter favourite of his trio, and one of the best movies of 1998 full stop. Far more satisfying and deeper than the overrated 'Boogie Nights' and the feather-light shallow fluff of 'Studio 54'-itself out scarily near to this one's release schedule, 'Last Days' is loosely based around disco's steep descent to doom, an idea Stillman conceived during the disco scenes shot on 'Barcelona'. And his film triumphantly nails the look, feel and atmosphere of early 80s Manhattan whilst his recognisably fizzing dialogue continues to display all the insight, tact and sharp wit one associates with him. Even more impressive is how his also recognisable bougeois, preppy and yuppie characters relate all this interaction without it ever feeling contrived or utterly out of place. Suffused with great performances and what could be the ultimate disco soundtrack, this is 110 minutes to utterly cherish, and a terrible shame it's become almost forgotten among all the mire out there. High time this was righted, even now Kate Beckinsale's become a big star. Ironically it remains by far her best film, along with 'Laurel Canyon', as now she's "made it", her taste and quality dived just like Reese Witherspoon's did.

Chole Sevigny plays "nice" in a marvellously understated role you really take to your heart, she is just so sweet, vulnerable, and you'd so want to be her friend.

This is a great little film with a brilliant ... disco ... soundtrack - which you never hear anyone talking about these days, so not surprised there are no reviews till NOW. And as anyone who knows any of Whit Stillman's work - there is plenty of talking in his films, and plenty of NY references and preppy college kids! Here, he follows a couple of girls in early 1980s New York as they share an undesirable "railroad" apartment in Manhattan - all they can afford as they try to pursue careers in the world of publishing. So far all very low key and a light touch of Muriel Spark's A Far Cry from Kensington time-shifted to 80s NYC. I am desperate to see this again ... as I recall then plot then gets the 2 girls involved in the disco clubbing scene referencing Studio 54 - cue fab soundtrack, various escapades; and an epic final scene to Love Train, taking place on ... the NY subway. Great!

Wow for such a sweet face that tongue is pretty well sharpened! This script is well crafted with lashings of unlikable characters and dry humour that just goes on and on. You may find yourself quoting it after watching but beware – you’re likely to loose your nice friends when you do.

The 70’s/ 80’s disco backdrop is just fabulous. The soundtrack surely would take up at least 3 discs. Plus the extra’s costumes are sensational, there’s always plenty to watch out for behind the main action. There is some cringeworthy dancing on display and how many of us will realize all over again that making a habit of looking moody in a nightclub is less mysterious and more annoying…

The DVD plays fine but the text on the case is all in Dutch which I wasn't made aware of before purchasing. As this was bought as a gift I found it embarrassing to pass on.
