Critic Reviews for The Last Thing He Wanted
The Last Thing He Wanted seems so taken with its own intricacy that it manages only to trip itself up.
What makes The Last Thing He Wanted ultimately so frustrating (while also elevating it a few notches above its awfulness as a thriller) is the fact that there are things it does quite well.
How does a director as stellar as Dee Rees go so thunderously wrong adapting a 1996 novel by the great Joan Didion, with a cast headed by Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck, and Willem Dafoe? Here's Exhibit A and the last thing any of us wanted.
On the page, the reader is transfixed by Didion's spare, sorrowful language. On screen, Hathaway's hard work can't stop the plot twist feeling silly.
I found the whole narrative confusing. Even if you can parse it out, it doesn't add up to a whole lot.
