Shadows on the Wall

stunning apocalyptic drama

The humor does not negate the scenario's anguished heart, brought to wrenching life primarily by the extraordinary Oh.

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.

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.

It's the End of The World as We Know It, and this crafty Canadian film chronicles the end times in smart, snappy fashion.

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.

Last Night succeeds where so many other films have failed because it concentrates on the element that its predecessors have ignored: the human factor.

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.

By far the best thing about Last Night is its conclusion.

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.

McKellar's only mistake was to craft the niggling central role of Patrick, and then play it himself.

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.

Could have been unbearably ponderous, but Canadian actor/director Don McKellar injects wry humor in place of angst.
