Movie Info

Darwin is a documentary film 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 near-ghost town's survival depends on a fragile, gravity-fed waterline that descends from the mountains where top-secret weapons are being tested.

Critic Reviews for Darwin

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2) | DVD (1)

A dull place doesn't automatically become worthy of scrutiny when a camera lens is aimed at it.

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.

"Darwin" is a beautiful, elegiac work with unexpected impact and meaning.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

A droll and dusty portrait of a place where privacy is prized and boundaries respected.

New York Times
Top Critic

Refusing to patronise the participants of his film, Brandestini's use of a chilling score, beautiful photography and a keen sense of balance makes Darwin a fascinating and charming film.

Film4

this alien landscape, shot wide by the Swiss filmmaker with an outsider's eye for the dustily hyperreal, is teeming with strange life and even stranger stories.

Eye for Film

As Darwin shows again and again, not talking can be its own form of storytelling.

Full Review… | September 8, 2011
PopMatters

Illuminating...To its credit, the documentary never leads viewers to laugh at the (eccentric) subjects' expense.

Full Review… | August 18, 2011
Movie Dearest

Atmospheric documentary set in Death Valley is surprisingly captivating.

Full Review… | August 15, 2011
Film Journal International

The documentary ultimately doesn't so much flesh out its subjects as slowly tear their Band-Aids off after some administering some putatively good-natured noogies.
