The Last Movie is a 1971 drama film directed by and starring Dennis Hopper, who also co-wrote the story with screenwriter Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause).

Kansas (Hopper) is a stunt coordinator in charge of horses on a Western film being shot in a small Peruvian village. Following a tragic incident on the set where an actor is killed in a stunt, he decides to quit the movie business and stay in Peru. His dreams of a paradisiacal existence are interrupted when he is called in to help in a bizarre incident: the Peruvian natives are "filming" their own movie with "cameras" made of sticks, and acting out real Western movie violence, as they don't understand movie fakery.
