4:44 Last Day on Earth. 2011. USA/Switzerland/France. Directed by Abel Ferrara. 35mm. 82 min.
Uniquely measured in its approach to the apocalypse genre, 4:44 Last Day on Earth is a bracing investigation of intimacy between a couple (played with absorbing vulnerability by Willem Dafoe and Shanyn Leigh) who aimlessly spend their last hours together in their Lower East Side apartment.
