Ken's Review of Contagion

5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Nicely underplayed. Very well acted to a subtle you are there extreme. Had a natural intimate documentary feel & storyline. Although I do suspect that this sudden pandemic throttling all humanity at once would in reality play out much more spectacularly, cruelly & chaotically than this well grounded common sense scenario was measuredly portrayed. I didn't appreciate the conspiracy theorists playing stalking horses for callous two faced snake oil sellers. But in real life it is often the case that the theory is the real conspiracy. So I guess so. But, in reality, you can never be too paranoid when Monsanto rules the natural world. Really.
