Don’t Look Up is brilliant – ignore the critics

Posted on

I wrote this on Twitter last night:

Most of those commenting seemed to share my opinion, although film critics have generally panned this film.

I won’t offer spoilers, because if you have not seen this I recommend that you do, although turn the volume up since if I have one criticism it is that so much of what is said appears to be mumbled.

The best moments? Jennifer Lawrence saying ‘We tried’. I recognised that sentiment. That, and the discussion of having supposedly had it all.

I sincerely hope this opens a few eyes. It deserves to do so.

There were also many good performances and contrary to reviews, a lot of humour.

Available on Netflix, which usually offers me nothing but a sense of despair about there being so many films I will never want to watch, and a sense of bewilderment that some must do so.
