Don McKellar wrote and directed this comedy-drama about the last night of the world, part of the 12-film Arte series of movies about the Millennium. Set in Toronto, Patrick (McKellar) endures a faux Christmas celebration with his family while Sandra (Sandra Oh) tries to get across town to commit suicide with her husband, a gas company employee Duncan (David Cronenberg). Meanwhile, Craig (Callum Keith Rennie) hopes to achieve sexual satisfaction with several women on his list. Still mourning his dead wife, Patrick plans his last moments alone, until he and Sandra crosspaths. Shown in the Directors Fortnight section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide

As end-of-the-world movies go, LAST NIGHT is amazing, the best I've ever seen and one of my favorite films of all time. No special effects. At all. But it's subtle, funny, moving, graceful and full of surprise. There's no more night--just constant daylight--and the people of this Canadian city are accepting things as best they can, each in his/her own way: working, praying, partying, having more sex, trying--at last--to make a commitment, even getting violent. This is such a creative and unusual film (by Don McKellar) with a splendid ensemble cast (including Sandra Oh, Sarah Polley, Genevieve Bujold, Callum Keith Rennie and David Cronenberg). Film fans: take a chance on this one. Now that I've learned that "Last Night" is on finally on DVD, it's going right into my queue.

It's the End of the World As We Know It
And I... well, you know. There must be thousands of movies that deal with the end of the world, impending or already accomplished. The tip of the iceberg looks like this...
