Calvin and Faustus

What does a Calvinist make of a man such as Dr. Faustus (as in the play by Marlowe), who has sold his soul to the Devil?

Is he unable to repent, unwilling to repent, or both?

He knows that only the blood of Christ can save him, yet he never really calls upon Christ to save him.  He fears the wrath of God, but is it too late?

Wikipedia weighs in on the Calvinism aspect of the play here.
