Last Night (1999)

LAST NIGHT imagines the last night on Earth, as seen through the 
eyes of a half-dozen Torontonians.  (With six hours and counting 
they prey, party, pair up, go off alone, make suicide packs, or... 
attend piano recitals.)  Glumly (and often stiffly) acted by such 
non-stars as Sarah Polley (GO), director David Cronenberg, and the 
film's writer/director Don McKeller, the premise is probably the 
most interesting thing here.  Some of the situations are intrigu-
ing, too, like a young man's methodical filling of his sexual fan-
tasies.  (Those remaining, that is...)  And, to the credit of the 
filmmakers, they gets an awful lot of mileage from simple shots of 
empty city streets.  Creepy...  

Grade: C+
