Movie Diary 12/19/2021

Don’t Look Up (Adam McKay, 2021). There are some easy shots, some solid hits, and a whole bunch of fun actors doing fun things. (And yet Mark Rylance still stands out.) It moves so manically that a number of scenes end in mid-sentence – a useful comic tool, actually – but the film is long, which somehow it should be, given its End of Times subject. Given the times we live in & etc., I can’t complain.
