Editorial Reviews

In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. Theyare in love. Sheas a painter, heas a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon - except that this isnat a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4: 44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined. The final meltdown will come not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their last cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They - like the majority of the Earthas population - have accepted their fate: the world is going to end.

What would one do when one realised that the world would end in 24 hours?
This film made a brief illustration using the mind set of a small group of people
in a large city.
It is an indie film difficult to watch at times but I found it rewarding and I didn't
expect it to be a disaster film.
A good effort by the filmmaker, the actors and the crew.

maybe the very thing that gives this film bad reviews is it forces us to give in to what would we do that is the human condition if this one shakes you so that you can pretend it didn,t happen well let me rattle your chain farther we now have the desire to blow us all up it saddens me that as a race we are so arrogant to stand up and say no when behind our back our fingers are crossed but what if we just strike 1st that is what makes me freak is that unalterable that not what if we can but whether we will

We'll this is written and directed by a cinema master. The one and only Abel Ferrara. He has created such masterpieces as 1990's King of New York and 1992's Bad Lieutenant. He also created the cult film 1978's The Driller Killer, among many others. He has a visionary talent about his films. There is a no holds bar, graphic tone to his films, that sticks out. He creates movies that play with your mind, movies that can cause controversy.

This is an interesting movie with the idea of the last day on earth. In reality this is a two person operation. You see two characters Cisco and Skye inside an apartment building as their last day unfolds. You see outside through television, radio, phone calls and glimpses out the window. Cisco does go out walking and visits friends while contemplating the coming reality.

This is a sci-fi fantasy but most of all it's a drama, because it's relatable. We can all feel this, we can all grasp the reality that the world will end and this is your last day with those you love. How do you spend it? How do you come to the reality this is the end?

This displays on the idea of the world ending, due to global warming, due to the destruction of the earth by man's doing. Al Gore is mentioned and his views on environmentalism. This also adds in a spiritual type of reality, where your two main characters meditate and Cisco seems to have visions of the end.

There's a moral reality. There's a human side. There's the fear and the idea of begin lost, scared and most of all trying to understand.

Defoe is priceless. He is able to create a thought-provoking character and yet there's only two people technically in this movie, at least the main focal point. Two persons corresponding. He gives it his all. His acting as always is flawless.

if i had never seen an abel ferrara film before, i might have hated it as much as everyone else here. however, i have been watching him for decades, he is an acquired taste. he is very arty, surreal, visual. he likes ideas and exploring them to the nth degree. i thought he did a very good job of ahowing how people might act on the last day of the world. there are scenes which i think are very right on and then others that are off. i will discuss each grouping.

the off scenes: people still reporting for work, such as driving taxis, clerking at convenience stores, delivering food from restaurants. i don't think anyone would be working on the last day well, let me amend that. there is one news anchor who states he can't imagine any finer way to finiish than doing a last broadcast. that i believed. there is also an incredible amount of noise coming from their street. this is the bustle of a busy city with sirens and congestion. i think it would be considerably more silent as far as those kinds of sounds, but these are not major scenes and ferrara does a much better job on the bigger scenes.

the right on scenes: people are skypeing one another primarily with apple computers. they want to see one another one last time. a guy simply walks out onto his fire escape and jumps, ending his life before the end comes. cisco, willem defoe, tells his ex-wife that he has always really loved her and he was really confused during the divorce. this his second, young wife, sky, overhears and goes ballistic. sky paints her way through the last day on a large canvas on the floor. she paints most of what she is feeling. she does the last of it in her favorite evening gown. cisco takes a last walk through the city streets and many people are drinking or partying one last time.

What is interesting here is the footage of various places around the world as the doomsday clock winds down for the human race--and a couple spends some tempestuous last hours together in a NY loft.

There is not much dialogue, though, and somehow it feels as if there should have been a lot more substance and perhaps more hashing out of emotions instead of so much time spent on painting and other quotidian things.

Overall, I would say that I did not like this movie at all. I wanted to. I really did. I wanted it to come up and grab my interest, but alas it did not.
The story follow a couple (unsure if they're married) as they brave the last day on earth.
I stopped watching about twenty minutes in, so my review is for the twenty minutes.
The areas of the movie that needed an overhaul in order for it to be better, well it all comes down to the story. The story was not all that great, and neither were the characters. They weren't compelling at all. I didn't care about them, and was therefore not interested in them.
In the story telling business of movies, you have 10 minutes (or less...and it should be less) to grab your audience, hopefully by a really awesome or intriguing character/s. This movie did not do that.
I would also say that the directing wasn't all that interesting either. They had a 5 min sex scene that I did not consider "sexy". And to spend 5 min in the first 20 min, on a sex scene, there better be some pretty hot things going on, and be a reason for the sex (i.e. something important that relates back to the character/story). Also, 5 min is a long time. (side note: I'm curious if "9 1/2 weeks" spent that much time on their sex scenes.)
Now, they did cast William Dafoe, who is an incredible actor. But they didn't give him a strong enough part equal to his talent, which is unfortunate.
So, this movie was a bummer for me, and I would not see it again or add it to my collection.
