"Last Cab To Darwin"
Luke's Rating: 6.5 of 10
Rotten Tomatoes: 91% 🍅
What an honestly produced film about the human condition. Rex is a cab driver living in Australia, who finds out that he is dying. He however doesn't wish to die naturally, but go on his own terms by medical suicide. His only problem, is that it is illegal in Australia to do so unless he has approval from both a qualified physician and psychologist. And on top of all that, the only place he can do it is directly across the country. So Rex sets off, and in his travels runs into unlikely companions, who teach him there is more to life than what we can fathom. I love a solid indie film, that showcases how talented a director is. Jeremy Sims is just that. His camera movement, and glorious B-roll, is refreshing, and I hope the man gets put on more projects. He has a great sense of story, as he is able to derive real emotion out of his actors. The acting from leading man Michael Caton complimented Sims directorial style, and thus made for an enjoyable movie. The only downfall of this film is that the subject matter, and premise have been overdone, but it is done in an original enough way that it is an accomplishment. This is a solid one to throw on Netflix if you got it.
