Veteran actor McDougall slipped into a final coma and died four days after shooting was completed. One of the most acclaimed Canadian films ever made.

Reviews

The Last Supper transgresses the terrain that normally exists between documentary and drama...Tremendously moving but morally complex. Ken McDougall is brilliant, dominating every scene in what can only be called the performance of a lifetime.
