*Contact* remains one of my favorite movies of all time.
The most impactful line of the movie for me: Jodie Fosters superior does something nasty to her and as some lame apology he says "the world is just this way. its not fair. nothing i can do about it." and Jodies response was "I always thought the world was what we made of it."
But aside from a pretty good opening scene, there is not much good that I can say about this movie, the technical aspect was really top notch and the film has 2 of the best camera shots I've ever seen in life anyway I hate this movie. The movie is not really bad or somehow I just do not like the attitude I have a real problem with the message and it uses the very movie crew I despise.
I do not want to talk badly about the director or the actors because they are doing their best, I rather want to trash the scriptwriter. I hate him the most because of the combination of things that happen here. (I know that the movie is based on a novel but that does not matter.)
So my conclusion is great idea, fantastic camera work, awesome effects but the less I hear from this movie and see for the rest of my life the better. Because I can really feel how the bile slowly comes up every time when someone reminds me of this movie. The fact that the foundation seems made for me, however, the facade and the roof only consists of things that I despise is simply the greatest impudence.
I highly recommend that you watch 'Contact', it's worth watching entirely just for Jodie Foster's performance as the lead character.
