I need a shower

The Last Picture Show is one of those formless films from the 1970s when no one was too worried about tight plotting or anything like that. There is a lot to like about this, not least of which is the wonderfully charismatic performance from a young Cybil Sheppard, though I did feel like I was complicit in the director's perving after the scene in which she does a strip tease before joining in a bout of skinny dipping.

Again, a quick review for Frank's APA of a film I would like to return to, if only to reassure readers that it is a film that has more to offer than an opportunity to leer at Cybil Sheppard.

Later: trying to find an image for the film's poster suggests that there are a lot of people out there who are only really interested in the pool scene mentioned above. Oh the humanity
