Most people are treating midnight as a matter-of-fact event with little sense of panic. In fact, many are celebrating this last day. Most have very specific wants for this last day and will do whatever they need to to make those wants happen. And some, such as Duncan and Donna with the gas company, are working, ensuring that the masses are served and comfortable during the final hours. The Wheeler family are marking the last day by having a Christmas party, although sullen adult son Patrick, his thoughts in part stemming from being recently widowed, has made it clear he wants to be alone in his own home at the end. Patrick’s wants may be in jeopardy when a woman named Sandra – Duncan’s wife – lands on his doorstep. Sandra is stranded, trying to make it across town to her own home so that she and Duncan can carry out their own last night pact at the stroke of midnight. As Patrick tries to help Sandra on his own, mostly unsuccessfully, they try to enlist the assistance of various people, including Patrick’s best friend Craig, who has his own sexually oriented last day list of tasks. As Sandra goes on her quest, Duncan himself faces his own issues while waiting for his wife. But as midnight approaches, some can’t fulfill their planned destiny so have to make some quick improvisations, while the priority of others changes.
Plot: Various citizens of Toronto anxiously await the end of the world, which is occurring at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day.

Haunting and Lovely
I found LAST NIGHT quite thought-provoking and moving the first time I saw it and its impact on me has only grown over time. This is an amazingly sophisticated and well-executed film for a first-time director. What I find thrilling about it is both the fine balance it finds between ideas and emotional resonance and its sense of tonal unity and control. The images and music have stayed with me for years. Despite the melancholic events of the story and the sense of loss that permeates the film (after all, we are talking about the end of the world here), a mordant sense of humour and finally a romantic, optimistic heart leavens the story’s darkness, without pushing the movie into cheap sentimentality or melodrama (Armageddon, anyone?). All this and only one of the most memorable closing images in modern film! Seek it out. It’s worth it.
Depressing, incredulous context, poor characterization – not worth seeing
I skimmed what others on the IMDB database had to say but I must just have not understood the film. A friend and I were what we thought to be 15 minutes or so late, so stayed to watch the beginning of the next showing, but it turned out we had only missed about 5 minutes. We had hoped, in vain as it turns out, that we would learn some context as to why/how the world was about to predictably end, cleanly right at midnight one day. When we left shortly after we got caught up, it was a relief for me to leave behind this depressing and unbelievable film, literally a welcome breath of fresh air.
The plot is simple – for some unknown reason, the whole world (or at least all humans) will come to an end at midnight, and if you listen carefully for just a few offhand and quick lines in dialogue, you will also note that this has been known for a few months and that night hasn’t fallen in some time (how could this be? Has the earth suddenly stopped rotating? Would India be in total darkness if Canada is in total light? Is the Western Hemisphere coming to an end?? Have people really given up? Who knows.). What would you do if you knew for a fact that the world were about to end? And had a few months to prepare for it?
You have to abandon your credulity even further, as the characters portrayed are largely 2-dimensional and whose motives and actions make little sense. Some may choose quite contemplation (a few of the characters pray), some may go mad (as one mother seems to have), some may review their lives (as a family does), but is human character so evil and interested in senseless entropy as to engage in pointless violence and property damage, crass behavior, and the like? I would think not – I would think that such a calamity would tend to make people introspective and to commiserate and hang together as a global community.
Philosophical perspective aside, the characterization had no depth. The camera techniques were mildly interesting, often involving shooting into hazy light, but the camera was not kind to the characters, making most of them look unflattering. How could this have been called a comedic drama? It was depressing through-and-through and the drama was very weak, with there being no attempt portrayed to understand/overcome the demise – instead all is just a rather ineffective depiction of individual reactions to the impending doom.
Rating: 3 out of 10, though I’m wondering why I rated it so high – maybe because of some of the great songs from the 1970s (for example, I was delighted to hear “Jimmy Loves Maryanne” by Looking Glass of “Brandy” fame – I didn’t know anybody knew this other song of theirs!)
