I can't wait for this! Do you guys like Abel Ferrera? I love Dafoe.


The film, with a screenplay also by Ferrara, stars Willem Dafoe, Shanyn Leigh, Paz de la Huerta, and Natasha Lyonne and was produced by Fabula, Funny Balloons, and Wild Bunch. The film premiered earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival and is also set to screen at the upcoming New York Film Festival.

How would we spend our final hours on Earth? And what does how we choose to die say about how we have chosen to live? In the hands of the inimitable Ferrara, 4:44 LAST DAY ON EARTH is a thought experiment that takes on a visceral immediacy. With the planet on the verge of extinction, a New York couple (Dafoe and Leigh) cycle through moments of anxiety, ecstasy, and torpor. As they sink into the havens of sex and art, and Skype last goodbyes in a Lower East Side apartment filled with screens bearing tidings of doom and salvation...

I'm sorry, I usually like Defoe but his last movie I saw, with the gory groin pounding scene, just really put me off. Loved him in Boondock Saints though!

Have not hit the link yet, what is the significance of 4:44?

Reason I ask is that I began seeing that a LOT a few years back, to the point that I began to think it must have some serious significance but I could not figure out what, then it stopped all of a sudden maybe 9 months ago and now I almost never see it.

While trying to figure out which film you were referring to, I ran into this...sounds interesting enough
The Hunter
a story about the search for the Tasmanian Tiger.

I think he was probably talking about anti-christ. Haven't seen it yet but I've heard it is pretty brutal. Hardly a reason to stop liking an actor though.

BTW love your descriptor "Metro Hick" might have to use it sometime.

Yes "Anti-Christ", it's too bizarre and it's not the groin pounding that makes me cringe in this film, it's the cutting of the woman.

But yeah shouldn't let this movie choice put you off the actor.
Have youy seen anamorph, thats a much better film in the lines of "Se7en" or "Saw".

End of the world movie, should be interesting. Don't want it too artsy though.
