Contagion (2011)

dir. Steven Soderbergh. Gallows humor movie watching. 11 years old but looks so fresh, thanks to Soderbergh’s polished style. The movie sounds so good, amazing beats and instrumental music. Marion Cotillard’s plot line is just as annoying as I remember, I wish that was cut. Laurence Fishburne a wonderful and believable high ranking government official. Kate Winslet is wonderful, Jude Law in infuriating. The fictional disease had a global death toll of 26 million people worldwide. The real world horror we’re facing is not near that, and hopefully never is. Stay safe and stay inside if you can, and wash your hands.
