stunning apocalyptic drama
| Original Score: 5/5
The humor does not negate the scenario's anguished heart, brought to wrenching life primarily by the extraordinary Oh.
| Original Score: 4/4
Required viewing for anyone who hasn't yet planned her own last night.
The film has a kind of airless, artificial quality that made it seem much longer than it actually was.
| Original Score: C
For all its wry humor, it concludes as a heart-piercing affirmation of life and love in the face of death.
While it lacks the tension and panic of a similar film, Miracle Mile, [it] boasts a cast of intriguing characters in an equally intriguing (though unlikely) scenario.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's the End of The World as We Know It, and this crafty Canadian film chronicles the end times in smart, snappy fashion.
| Original Score: 5/5
McKellar is a good storyteller, and he demonstrates a clever -- albeit dark -- sense of humor. But much of it goes for naught because of the movie's sterile patina.
| Original Score: 2/4
Last Night succeeds where so many other films have failed because it concentrates on the element that its predecessors have ignored: the human factor.
| Original Score: 3/4
Last Night employs an intriguing 'what if' scenario and mines a few authentic moments, but is hampered by the narrow imagination of its young creator.
What begins as a serious attempt to question the materiality of existence and an individual's lack of control within a larger world spirals into a rather cloying romanticism.
Last Night is the work of a good playwright, not a screenwriter.
One of the few genuinely original films at the 1998 Cannes Festival.
By far the best thing about Last Night is its conclusion.
| Original Score: B
There are moments of transcendant truth and beauty, surrounded by a film that isn't sure what it wants to do or where to go.
| Original Score: 3/5
McKellar's only mistake was to craft the niggling central role of Patrick, and then play it himself.
An engaging apocalyptic romance.
The final countdown - when people are doing the things that most define them, in their infinite variety, as human beings - is exhilarating yet packed with significance.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Could have been unbearably ponderous, but Canadian actor/director Don McKellar injects wry humor in place of angst.
...a no-frills but convincing execution of the end of the world.
