Now this is more like it. While the upcoming film “Seeking A Friend for the End of The World” looks like a warm and gooey version of the end of days, “4:44 Last Day On Earth” feels like a come down off the H Train and the mad scramble to find the next and last fix before someone with more clout than you turns the lights out. The film a look at what would happen if everyone knew the world was ending and its brought to us by Abel Ferrara, director of KING OF NEW YORK and BAD LIEUTENANT. This inky black, sleazy perspective of the world stars Willem Defoe, Shanyn Leign, Natasha Lyonne, Paul Hipp and Paz de la Huerta sharing the quiet acceptance of their demise. Then the World is Ending there is not much to do to avoid it, you just kick back, order Vietnamese take out, and let it happen. Preferably with your favorite record on repeat and a bottle of whiskey.
I’m told that fans of both doomsday scenarios and movies that feature close-ups of Willem Dafoe’s pubic region will be walking away eerily pleased from this one.
