"You may think you've seen all the road trip movies you'll ever want to see in your lifetime, but trust me on this: Darius Goes West is not your average road trip flick. The film is a documentary about 15-year-old Darius Weems, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the most common type of MD. Duchenne is always fatal, killing the boys who have it by their late teens to early 20s. Darius watched his older brother, Mario, die of Duchenne, and he knows he faces the same fate, and yet his attitude is so positive, so sunny and bright, that other people are drawn to the infectious orbit of his radiant personality."

- Kim Voynar, Cinematical Indie


"Despite the subject matter, Darius Goes West is not a depressing, disease-of-the-week movie. In fact, if anything, the film is an amazing celebration of life."

- David Walker, Willamette Week
