    That tweet is a huge misread of the film. Especially if you know Adam McKay’s ideology and work in the slightest.

    Mark Rylance’s character is incredibly funny . He should have had more screen time especially in the beginning. What a freak

    Just seen it. It was a satire. An in-your-face satire, not subtle at all. Maybe its best that way. It was funny at times. Predictable. The actors were great (Jonah and Meryl the funniest characters), the message was even better. It was basically anticapitalist. Which i wholeheartedly agree with. I actually think it is an important message, mostly in these dark times we are living.

    I commend this movie for giving this message and for doing in a fun, digestable way. Its not a particullary easy message to convey or a message audiences want to hear. People dont want to go to the movies to think about how profundly injust the system (thus, the world) we live in is. But this movie does it, convincingly. It elevates the movie for me and i applaud it.

    Also, i love the Elon Musk slander. Finally movies are calling this fascist lunatics for what they are. They love to mask their greed with “evolution of human kind” or some bs and they are absolute assholes at best, dangerous narcissists and fascists often.

    I was waiting for him to appear the whole time. Did he do or say something stupid in public?

    I really hope this at least gets nominated for best ensemble at SAG! Blanchett, Ariana, Timothee, Perlmann, and Melanie Lynskey were all stellar in their smaller roles. The only weak link in the cast was Jonah Hill, who in my opinion was absolutely cringe worthy and painfully unfunny any time he was on screen.

    Thank god that I am not the only one. I totally agree with you when it comes to Jonah Hill.

    Another thing is that Dont Look Up does not have the rhythm like The Big Short has. The latter movie made things flow whereas Dont Look Up was more staccato

    I have to say I absolutely loved this film! My favourite of the year so far (I do love comedies though). I thought the majority of the performances were great, with amazing comedic timing from Streep, Blanchett and Hill). Leo was great as well. I loved the score, visual effects and thought the screenplay was very good.

    Grade: 9/10

    I don’t think this was better that The Big Short but it was more enjoyable than Vice that’s for sure.

    I actually interpreted this film very differently. I thought the film clearly showed that attempting to use corporate media and politics was futile because of how the government is controlled by the rich elite and corporations.

    And I think part of what the movie wanted to to say is that these kind of things CLEARLY can’t depend of the americans

    i liked it and the commentary on our society and how the media works these days and how some people are simply put braindead.

    People went nuts here (Turkey). Many people call this is one of the best Netflix movies in years. Current politics in Turkey helps, though.

    The problem of “Don’t Look Up” for me was that it’s not incisive enough. For me it was not a revelation that in our sexist superficial society we’d make memes out of everything, that American morning news programs are crap, that the political establishment is ill-equipped to deal with a global emergency and it would exploit it to be re-elected or that big tech corporations only care about making more money.

    In my opinion, improvisation was not handled well in the editing room at all: in particular Jonah Hill tends to go on a bit too much (nothing wrong with it, that’s his style) and it clashes with McKay’s editing, Chalamet was hit or miss (assuming they’re improvised, I loved the twitch bit, hated the potatoes one at the supermarket).

    It’s a mildly entertaining movie that everybody will watch because of the incredible cast and the fast talk, but it thinks it has intelligent and deep things to say when in fact it’s full of witless satire and cartoonish characters that seem written by an amateur screenwriter. The last dinner scene was the only bit that I thought deserved to be expanded because that’s when you understood the humanity and inner life of some of those characters.

    It is no wonder that people like this movie: they always go for the sledgehammer instead of the surgical knife.
