Contagion ★★★★

A great movie in its own right, but in the current situation this is absolutely prophetic, the most terrifying horror movie I've seen in years and yet we're already living it.

In a perverse way, Contagion actually makes me a little bit relieved. The disease in the movie here is such a worst-case scenario that it makes COVID-19 seem like a seasonal flu. And while Jude Law's disgusting, horrible character is based on real people who profiteer off lies and ignorance, those people are not winning the battle in real life, not anymore at least. Somehow this movie makes me a little bit more optimistic about what's going on.

Edit: I spoke way too soon about that Jude Law part
