WANTED TO LOVE IT - BUT DIDN'T

Being a lover of New Zealand cinema, I wanted to be one of the first to see "The Last Magic Show". I wish I hadn't.

The film tries to be unique, off-the-wall, endearing. What you get is Punch Drunk Love meets Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka. Nothing original.

Acting is appalling, especially Jade Collins' first outing.

Best things are the beautiful soundtrack and the always amusing Michael Hurst.
