I rejoined Netflix mainly to watch Don’t Look Up.
Be sure to watch the credits. There are 3 endings.
Something between a star-studded Hollywood blockbuster and an amateur YouTube documentary. Very original editing.
You’ve never seen DiCaprio like this. He had a lot of input on the script.
- Meryl Streep as Janie Orlean (Donald Trump), President of the United States
- Mark Rylance as Peter Isherwell, tech billionaire & major GOP donor
- Ron Perlman as Colonel Benedict Drask (awesome!)
- Ariana Grande as Riley Bina (Ariana Grande)
The Republican tribe is urged to NOT LOOK UP at the planet busting comet. And deny what they can see with their own eyes. 😀 It parallels the American idiocracy of covid denial, for example. Apathy, incompetence and self-interest.
Denial of science.
It’s certain ReTrumplicans will hate this film.
This movie came from my burgeoning terror about the climate crisis and the fact that we live in a society that tends to place it as the fourth or fifth news story, or in some cases even deny that it’s happening, and how horrifying that is, but at the same time preposterously funny.— Adam McKay, writer, director, and producer of Don’t Look Up
