The newest episode of my short radio series The Indie on Demand Movie Review takes a look at 4:44 Last Day on Earth, in which Willem Dafoe and Shanyn Leigh are cast as a New York couple awaiting the end of the world, and director Abel Ferrara -- he of such nihilistic exercises as King of New York and Bad Lieutenant -- is cast as someone who sees the end of all humanity as a time of personal reflection and spiritual questing, rather than, say, raging masses clawing over each other in order to snag the last seat on the final spaceship out.
