‘Last Cab to Darwin’

Last-Cab-To-DarwinBit of a ripper of an Australian film – a straightforward telling of a topical storyline (euthanasia) which touches on local culture, attitudes and behaviour.

Last Cab to Darwin misses its full emotional potential by avoiding dwelling on the darker side of the subject, but the film is full of wry humour and the road journey of four thousand kilometres through the guts of Oz looks sensational. And it’s certainly a successful transfer of the stage play of the same name by Reg Cribb.
