4:44 Last Day on Earth

4:44 Last Day on Earth ★★★½

Extremely low-key end of the world, which makes it one of the saddest when people seem to mostly keep going as usual without even letting go of the negative aspects of life for one day. Curious parallel between the screens and videos that are omnipresent throughout the film and some notion of a more spiritual kind of interconnectedness? Ultimately this is also a very personal and intimate film, a day of reckoning for Dafoe's character (and perhaps Ferrara himself) as opposed to a fully literal, speculative vision of the end of our species.
