Filmmakers Mark Benjamin and Marc Levin show Robert Downey Jr. at the 1992 Democratic National Convention.
The Last Party is a documentary film co-written by and starring Robert Downey, Jr. Interviews and commentary cover moments of history during the 1992 presidential campaigns and investigate the issues of the day with Downeys particular brand of off-beat humor and satire. Although Downeys political sympathies are clear in the film, he lampoons both Democrats and Republicans equally, and provides elements of general social commentary, as well. The film also provides a snap-shot of Robert Downey, Jr., at a point in his life where he was falling into drug addiction that later led to an interruption in his career.
Prominent persons who appeared in the documentary include: George H. W. Bush, Barbara Bush, Pat Buchanan, Bill Clinton, Patti Davis, Spike Lee, Jerry Brown, Roger Clinton, Oliver Stone, Al Sharpton, Dave Mustaine, Suzanne Soderberg, G. Gordon Liddy, Marc Levin, Sean Penn, John Kerry, Peter Jennings, Jerry Falwell, Oliver North, Chelsea Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Mario Cuomo, John Dean, John Ehrlichman, Betty Friedan, Al Gore, Tipper Gore, H.R. Haldeman, Tom Hayden, Jesse Jackson, Ted Kennedy, Ross Perot, Dan Quayle, Dan Rather, Ronald Reagan, Ann Richards, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Christian Slater.
