"Don’t Look Up (McKay, 2021)"


  

          

I really liked The Big Short.
I didn’t like Vice.
I *really* didn’t like Don’t Look Up.

One half earnest, overwrought, and patronizing. The other half broad, buckshot, and patronizing. The good bits were reeeeeeeally few and far between for me. I fear McKay’s compulsion to make “important movies” has completely compromised his ability to make good and/or effective movies.

I know some who really liked this, so maybe I’ll be alone here. But woof. A huge miss and a massive waste of talent for me. Easily Leo’s worst movie of the last decade and one of the worst of his career.

Something nice to say about it: Chalamet is easily the MVP. Dude has real comedic chops. He’s in, like, 4-5 scenes in a 150 minute movie, but still.
