Last Night Reviews

Nick's Flick Picks

The film has a kind of airless, artificial quality that made it seem much longer than it actually was.

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.

Film Journal International

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.

Last Night is the work of a good playwright, not a screenwriter.

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.

As the final hour approaches for the characters in Last Night, there are moments of startling poignancy.

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

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

I wasn't sure if I liked Last Night until about an hour after I left the theater and realized I was having a hard time escaping the psychological wake of this allegory about the end of the world.

Although Last Night eschews sentimentality, the situation is so extreme that there is ultimately no avoiding it. But the intense performances of [Ms Oh and McKellar] ... keep the suds from billowing into more than a few discreet bubbles.
