Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A droll and dusty portrait of a place where privacy is prized and boundaries respected. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Aug 11, 2011

Fresh: "Darwin" is a beautiful, elegiac work with unexpected impact and meaning. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Aug 19, 2011

Rotten: A dull place doesn't automatically become worthy of scrutiny when a camera lens is aimed at it. – Toronto Star, Aug 24, 2012

Fresh: Depending on how you look at it, Darwin is either an affirmative record of proud outliers getting by on true grit or a grim snapshot of a community on its last, buckling legs. – Adam Nayman, Globe and Mail, Aug 24, 2012

A Little Strange but True

Myself, being fascinated by human behavior, found this a pleasant documentary—a peek into the lives of some quirky individuals who live life on their own terms. It lightly touches on but doesn’t brag about independent spirits and rugged individualism. A group of people who are making their way through life in their own way. Not a great film by any stretch, but an interesting look into the lives of real people.
