With Wit, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen

Boy, the future becomes to suck more and more.

Even sucking in the now time happens in “Contagion”.  It is not a cinema suck – but a suck as to the matters at hand.

Or within the lungs.

Or bowel.

Or your brain!!!

The movie though?  Pretty dang good.

I have “Contagion” fever!  A-choo!!!

To what Steven Soderbergh, the old shit-kicker, wants to educate us, would be worth a closer look:  “Contagion” stands out first of all with several top stars:  Kate Winslet (Yes!), Marion Cotillard (Oui!), Gwyneth Paltrow (Meh.), Matt Damon, Jude Law and Laurence Fishburne.

This amount does Soderbergh, but also because “Contagion” is an apocalyptic thriller epidemics that so many must appear.

Body count = Box office.  Fact.

It is a bird-flu-like epidemic that kills the people like flies.  Or birds, since they named this flu.

He weaves a tapestry of images, a network of relationships knits from infection, health police and media reports covering the whole world – a symphony of the disease.

I would pay money to hear a disease symphony.  They are rare.

Globalization and cinema par excellence, in the rapidly between Tokyo and New York and everywhere, and the way the disease is marked visually – simple peanuts, a innocent computer, a hand on a pole in the bus (a bus pole you dirty people – stop thinking like I think!).

The whole thing is very elegant and beautiful to see – maybe there is already a problem with a disease movie.

Above all, one must ask, what should it end?  Other than for we must, at some point, get to go home from the cinema.

She is a vegan and watches her few minutes of film correspondingly weakened and drained of blood from the laundry.

A very convenient place for a drainage (you can clean your bloody clothes while doing the dying).

The best scene of the movie then the one in which Paltrow lies dead on the autopsy table (type casting!  I kid you Goop Queen).

Since her with a beautiful sawing noise of the skull is sawed and pulled the scalp (hers) to the front – suddenly her blond hair hanging under her chin.

Like poor Mr. Cobain after being the killed  - shotgun to face style – by the shrewish Ms. Love (unproven, but I know.  Yes… I know.).

As I watch her in the brain, of which obviously is not much left – I think “does vegan diet shrinks the brain – or the flu?”  And it is then also equal the best dialogue of the film:  “Oh my god!  What’s that?” – “Should I call anyone?” – “Call everyone!”

Without concern for cellular calling plan.  That is a bad-ass flu that puts the forget on that.

Apparently, researchers analyze striking epidemics in clusters in clusters.  Or a cluster-cluster.

The more clusters, the worse the hit when there is a fan shitting.

The most annoying moments are those in which Soderbergh with the disease still puritanical moralizing – disease trigger is a combination of cheating (pathogen sex!), gambling and the consumption of pork (Carnitas are too good to cause disease. Fact. Other pork products – watch out!).

And at the very end of Asia are still very poor hygiene and blame for everything!

What?

Well, if you have scapegoats.  And who doesn’t like a goat?

So… no “Omega Man”, no “Andromeda Strain”.  Yet I give two thumbs, fighting with sickness, flopping, sweat-covered, ever upward – in the liking!

    Sounds like my kind of movie.

  2. Kimmo seems to have really gotten off on this movie……scary. However, he makes it sound appealing while the subject matter is appalling.

  3. I am not afraid. Woe to the virus that tries to eat my brain. Bend over, virus. Daddy’s home.

    • Hahaha! Right on Kyrle! That’s what I say when someone sneezes near me and says, I hope I don’t give you my cold!”!

  4. Great review.
    Have a look at my take on the film – damn enjoyable but then virus movies are always fun!

  5. Dear Mankabros,
    Thanks you for your post, Its 5:50 exactly where I dwell correctly now and I have to make a pick by seven if I could see Contagion.

    I read through a good deal of reviews and evidently its a classy zombie movie? o_O

    I am thirteen, and my mom claims I’m a hypochondriac and she thinks I am ridiculous that I want to see this motion picture, considering of that explanation.

    When I was basically little I watched Cabin Fever. I think I was 7.

    I viewed it and would not drink h2o for very nearly two decades, they had to sneak me a glass the following And there, and I became de-hydrated two days.

    I would even examine labels to see if it had drinking water in it, given that I was that silly!

    Anyway, I’ve grown up a minor seeing as then, and I can look at frightening films with no finding freaked out. But I dislike gory movies..

    Will need to I see Contagion?
    And if you presume I should probably, is it suitable?
    All the Best
