Slant Magazine

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.

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

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

Eye for Film

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.

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

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.

Atmospheric documentary set in Death Valley is surprisingly captivating.

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

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

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.
