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.
A droll and dusty portrait of a place where privacy is prized and boundaries respected.
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.
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.
As Darwin shows again and again, not talking can be its own form of storytelling.
Illuminating...To its credit, the documentary never leads viewers to laugh at the (eccentric) subjects' expense.
Atmospheric documentary set in Death Valley is surprisingly captivating.
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.
