Trust no one.
That’s the feeling you get when you watch Contagion. Soderbergh’s portrayal of society is both refreshing, and terrifying. The strength of the movie is in its realism. If a virus broke out today that has the potential to wipe out millions of the population how would we react? Contagion looks at this, and does a really good job at giving varying viewpoints, while the CDC looks tries to find an answer. But does that make the film any good?
