This movie is so exhausting. So good.
We live in a nasty world, people who could care less about washing hands as they make your dinner, a sick coworker who decides to come into work spreading their germs every where, or the person hacking behind you as you stand in line.
This movie really should open eyes up to watch actually really could happen. Please people wash your hands, be cleaner!!
Your daily reminder to wash your hands or die painfully
On every occasion I've seen this film, I've gotten really sick a couple of days later, like really sick, which makes me incredibly paranoid because this film is one of the best pandemic related ones I've seen.
4th time watching Contagion.
2nd rewatch in 3 days.
Im still in love.
It might be the funnest movie to watch with friends who are watching it for the first time.
Not many movies could have withstood 2 viewings in 3 days. Even a masterpiece. (this is not a recommended habit.) In fact I liked it even more this time around. For that I must bump it up.
5/5 loved the ending.
Thumbs Up: Amazing dedication to realism and exploring what a world-wide pandemic would look like, Soderbergh's awesome cinematography and Mirrione's precise editing create almost unbearable dread and tension, incredible cast who all turn in excellent performances (its genuinely impossible to single any one actor out), superb score.
Thumbs Down: Marion Cotillard's sub-plot is a bit weak, the lack of a clear climax means the film just sort of winds down in a kind of undramatic (albeit more realistic) way.

Holding up just as well upon second viewing, Contagion's ultra-realism and talented cast give this thriller an eerie and chilling undertone.
Boasting a top-notch cast (including magnetic performances from Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Ehle and Laurence Fishburne) and a brilliant writer-director, Contagion is an accurate and gripping thriller, which is both eerily relevant and uncomfortably chilling.
It's like if Magnolia got sick.
