From George Hickenlooper (HEARTS OF DARKNESS: A FILMMAKERS APOCALYPSE about the making of APOCALYPSE NOW) comes this award-winning documentary about the making of another '70's classic THE LAST PICTURE SHOW - director Peter Bogdanovich's Academy Award? Winning masterpiece filmed in a small Texas town... PICTURE THIS follows Bogdanovich to Texas where he candidly reflects on the demise of his marriage, his affair with actress Cybill Sheperd, the murder of his girlfriend Dorothy Stratten, his collaboration with Pulitzer Price-winning novelist Larry McMurtry and the personal traumas suffered by the cast, crises, which bore an uncanny resemblance to the characters they were portraying. PICTURE THIS both humorously and provocatively deconstructs the layers of fiction and reality that went into the turbulent making of Bogdanovich's triumphant work "The Last Picture Show" which was acclaimed as "the greatest film since Citizen Kane."
