Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A droll and dusty portrait of a place where privacy is prized and boundaries respected.
Fresh: "Darwin" is a beautiful, elegiac work with unexpected impact and meaning.
Rotten: A dull place doesn't automatically become worthy of scrutiny when a camera lens is aimed at it.
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.
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.
