No. The US Supreme Court is the final court of appeal; if they deny your case, the decision of the lower court stands. There is no other avenue of appeal.

Why is the supreme court called the court of last resort?

The term "court of last resort" generally refers to the Supreme Court (in the USA) or the highest court in the land (in other countries). This nickname applies because you cannot appeal any higher than the Supreme Court. It's literally your last resort - your last option for having the outcome of your case changed. If the Supreme Court turns down your appeal or decides against you, there is no higher court to which you can appeal.

A plaintiff or defendant in a federal court case (or in a state court case where a Federal Constitutional issue is in dispute ) who wants to appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States may ask for a writ of certiorari. The U.S. Supreme Court is obligated to take certain cases on appeal (for example, capital murder cases) but has discretion to take or not take certain others. The writ of certiorari is the Supreme Court's written agreement to take one of those discretionary cases on appeal.

Why does the US Supreme Court exercise considerable discretion in deciding which cases to review?

So many cases are appealed to the US Supreme Court that if it had mandatory appellate jurisdiction, its workload would be impossible to manage. In addition, the Supreme Court has the ability to permit lower court decisions to stand without actually hearing them on appeal. It does this by denying the request to be heard when it denies the "writ of certiorari". This has the effect of allowing the lower court opinion to stand unchanged just as if it had heard the appeal and ruled that the lower court decision was correct.
