Hi Larry,
I watched "The Last Winter" last week.
The film made a deep & curious impact on me.
It's like I don't know...these days (we're in) are somehow an odd amalgam of things strange and sweet, and a lot of us must be feeling emotions that sometimes aren't so easy to locate or articulate or you know give voice to.
And I think -speaking for myself, and perhaps clumsily- I get real excited when I see film which works also as psychological catalyst...which your films well they do provide that.
And especially "The Last Winter"; you've supplied a kind of non-verbal language to explore feelings routing into the subconcious...into dream-states even with recognition of some thing primordial.
I'm very grateful; thankful that you make the films you do.
So let me just add this:
I'm an artist, a visual artist,
and if it seems okay to you I'd like to send a small gift
a work I created late that night after I watched "The Last Winter".

I just saw your film "The Last Winter"  That was the biggest piece of garbage I have ever seen.  Give me a break.  Global Warming is not man caused, which is a fact, and America needs to drill in Alaska. Sorry if a couple of Caribou get killed in the process.  It is ironic that environmentalist like you are actually going to destroy the world.   I guess if it was up to you we would all be riding in stage coaches.  Well I hope you watch my film.  I think I am going to make a film that is the total opposite of what you did.  Something that actually tells Americans the truth

I just had to write,

Giant moose ghosts? Now the always silly environmental movement has truly jumped the shark. Congratulations on making one of the dumbest movies I have ever had the misfortune to sit through. Is this how directors get noticed these days by suckling at the "green" teat?

Mr. Fessenden,

My name's Patrick Steele; I am an Ohio-based feature filmmaker (with political and environmental concerns) who has followed your career--and has greatly enjoyed your work--for many years. I recently was able to see THE LAST WINTER and wanted to thank you for such a powerful, compelling piece. It's your most nuanced and mature work to date, and I sincerely hope it reaches a much wider audience once released on DVD.

Please accept my thanks for producing work that's not only entertaining, but topical and heartfelt as well. I wish you the best on your next endeavor, and shall wait for it impatiently.

Hello Larry Fessenden,

I am so amazed at your current website project. I just watched The Last Winter and noticed the runningoutofroad website at the end of the credits. The Last Winter is so incredible good.

Nice work at all!

Dear Mr. Fessenden,

My name is Gary McMahon, and I'm a writer from the UK. I don't even know if this email will reach you, but thought I'd like to drop you a line to say how much I enjoyed your film "The Last Winter". I don't usually write "fan" mail, but stumbled across this email addy whilst browsing the web for references to the film.

I was lucky enough to see "Wendigo" a couple of years ago, and was so impressed that I promptly bought the DVD - the scene with the little boy caught up in that weird storm of light was pure visual poetry. This, I felt, was a film that apprached the horror field through the eyes of an artist. Now, with the new film, I think you've taken that vision a step further, and must commend you on this very personal approach to the genre. I adored the links to "Wendigo", and the subtle references to Algernon Blackwood. Sublime stuff.

Anyway, I look forward greatly to your next film.

All the very best,

Send us some e-mail and we'll post it.
