With its stark lighting, close quarters, and video photography, The Last Great Wilderness feels a lot like The Celebration, though it isn't an official Dogme film. Too bad that with a dead tired storyline, it doesn't resemble The Celebration in any way that matters. The story concerns two Scottish fellas (and in fact, the first third of the film concerns how they meet at a roadside diner) who run out of gas and hole up at a bizarre boarding house/maybe-cult den in the remote highlands. The movie wants to be everything from splatter film to black comedy and succeeds at none of them, owing to an unintersting script and dead-dull characters.
