4:44 Last Day On Earth

3

Willem Dafoe's seeking a friend for the end of the world

Given how few Abel Ferrara films reach our shores now, perhaps this eco-apocalypse melodrama should be greeted with enthusiasm.
 
But there’s something dreary about Ferrara’s first filmic return to New York in more than a decade, as two lovers – Dafoe’s actor and Shanyn Leigh’s artist – await the apocalypse in a loft apartment.
 
Sex, Skype and a craving for illicit substances dominate, with Ferrara’s indulgent canvas capturing only briefly the emotions such an event might induce.
