About the Movie
Darwin is a documentary feature about an isolated community at the end of a weathered road in Death Valley, California. Propelled from society by tragic turns, the people of Darwin (population 35) must now find ways to coexist in a place without a government, a church, jobs, or children. The film tells the story of a uniquely American place and yet a place that is unique even within America.

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.
The DarkHatter is Pleased
Home, home on the range, where the misfits and outliers roam, where seldom is heard nary a true word, and folks are left alone. We all dream of dropping off the grid - these mythopoetic homesteaders have done it! Definitely worth watching. The DarkHatter is pleased.
I stumbled on this
Great doc. I'd watch it again. Weird town, but aren't they all.
Worth the watch. So interesting and a well made doc.
