Last Chants for a Slow Dance

Jon Jost’s first narrative feature remains one of his most important works. Allegedly inspired by the life of Gary Gilmore, the film is a minimalist road movie that dissects macho behavior. It follows an unemployed cowboy drifter (Tom Blair), estranged from his wife and kids, who drives across Montana in his pickup in a half-hearted attempt to find a job. Jost also wrote, shot, and edited the film—and penned the country songs heard in it. He will answer questions after the screening. “My own favorite among Jon Jost's experimental narratives…Powerful and provocative.” –Jonathan Rosenbaum.
