I really liked Robert Aldrich's Twilight's Last Gleaming. It may look absolutely terrible, like a poorly-funded TV movie, and be overly reliant on some dubious split-screen techniques, while Burt Lancaster dictates to other actors about his various plans.
However, it remains a tremendously entertaining good time. With Lancaster, Richard Widmark, Burt Young, Roscoe Lee Browne, Paul Winfield, Charles Durning, Joseph Cotten, Melvyn Douglas and William Marshall, it has a brilliant ensemble, led by Lancaster's man-of-principle gone wrong.
Twilight's Last Gleaming is somewhere between a paranoid thriller, and a talky disaster film. It is a paranoid procedural from the 1970s.
The film is well-paced, despite its 144 minute run-time, and never outstays its welcome. It is a bleak film, in the manner of the 1970s, but never miserable. It has some fine action, some interesting visual touches, and a lot of good actors talking to each other.
