Don't Look Up

Don't Look Up ★★★

DON’T LOOK UP works better as a terrifying end of the world downer than as a political & social satire. Love it or hate it, Adam McKay’s flashy editing & unsubtle commentary are back. I’m very much in the “love it” camp but like the scientists in this movie, I can’t say I was 100% won over this time around. Everyone in the cast is a blast to watch even if I enjoyed the grounded performances (led by a supremely stressed & panic-stricken Leonardo DiCaprio) more than the exaggerated ones. Nicholas Britell’s score & the song from Ariana Grande & Kid Cudi are wonderful.
