    White Mansplaining Savior: The Movie

    Drink every time Talia Shire asks a question to elicit information for the audience.

    Filed within the “everyone is profoundly stupid” canon of cinema.  This film from the Frankenheimer back catalogue isn’t a CANDIDATE for… (wait for it!)… SECONDS!

    (crickets… groans… Letterboxd snobs scoffing loudly…)

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★½

    The subject matter begs urgency.  The film requires distance.  Meanwhile, if you pretend the undermining epilogue doesn’t exist, this satire becomes much more devastatingly effective.

    ★★

    For a minute, I thought the blonde-haired, blue-eyed romantic leads of this regressively bonkers 60's dance-craze styled musical comedy wouldn't get together... but golly, I sure was wrong!


    To be fair, I almost peed myself laughing during two of the most absurdly ridiculous musical numbers in succession I've even seen on film.  If it was intentional, then mission accomplished!

    At first I was surprised by how comfortable Noomi Rapace was with the entire situation, but to be honest, I’ve always been more comfortable with a poly-cotton blend.
