Last Night 1998

images-3

Writer director and star Don McKellar summed up the pre-millennium angst of 1998 with this moody, multi-character drama. Last Night focuses on the last evening of planet earth, and follows a selection of Toronto residents as they try and find some accommodation with themselves as the world ends. McKellar calls in support from fellow Canadian directors Sarah Polley and David Cronenberg in supporting roles, as well as Sideways star Sandra Oh. A cold, reflective piece, McKellar’s intimate film sits nicely alongside melancholia as an end-of-the-world piece that ducks sci-fi cliché in favour of existential angst.
