Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” Is Suddenly The Movie Of The Moment (Nearly A Decade Later)

Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” Is Suddenly The Movie Of The Moment (Nearly A Decade Later)
There are two schools of thought when it comes to viewing Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 film Contagion here in the mess that is 2020. On the one hand, you have people who have flocked to the movie in recent days. On the other hand, you have those who think that’s an absolutely terrible idea, one that unnecessarily upsets you and causes extra anxiety in a time of crisis. Honestly, both are true, and that’s part of why it works so well. Directing a script by Scott Z. Burns, Soderbergh put forth a riveting depiction of a viral outbreak. Today, we’ll dive in and give it a new review, as seen with a modern lens. For those who don’t remember, the film is a drama about what a global pandemic could be like in the modern world. This was the official plot synopsis from Warner Bros. at the time:

‘Lost in America’: Film Review
You might feel a sense of shame watching Rotimi Rainwater’s “Lost in America,” an expansive documentary look at the issue of youth homelessness in a country where the problem seems unthinkable, and its victims are so often invisible. You are likely to ask yourself how many times you have passed by a homeless child and did not quite see them. The statistics are scary: According to a recent study, nearly 4.2 million kids live out on the streets due to heartbreaking reasons which Rainwater examines in his caring film, chronicling his six-year journey across 15 cities to grasp the breadth of the epidemic. One thing will be certain after tagging along that trip with him: Your eyesight will never skip over the homeless youth again.

That is mostly thanks to Rainwater’s approachable prose — not a feat of filmmaking perhaps, but an absorbing act of compassion nevertheless. As a person who

Pilot Season 2020 Actors Hot List: Keri Russell, Lisa Kudrow & Catherine O’Hara Among Top Choices As Nets Grapple With Stiff Competition & Skyrocketing Salaries

Pilot Season 2020 Actors Hot List: Keri Russell, Lisa Kudrow & Catherine O’Hara Among Top Choices As Nets Grapple With Stiff Competition & Skyrocketing Salaries
In an industry often criticized for its obsession with youth in front of the camera, it has been nice to see accomplished veterans Catherine O’Hara, Judith Light and Katey Sagal attracting multiple offers at the onset of the 2020 broadcast pilot season. Sagal already made her choice, committing to play the lead in ABC’s high-profile drama pilot Rebel, from Krista Vernoff.

As broadcast networks and studios begin to go down their wish lists, reaching out to A-list actors for pilot leads, they also are facing anxiety over whether they will be able to land the big names they are after and how much it will cost.

Because of the proliferation of deep-pocketed streaming platforms that have driven salaries up to $1 million an episode for A-listers on new shows, it has been harder for broadcasters to attract top talent, especially on the drama side. Last season, they raised the salary bar,

How ‘Love & Basketball’ Allowed Issa Rae to Dream

How ‘Love & Basketball’ Allowed Issa Rae to Dream
Issa Rae says she had every reason to think she could be a filmmaker when she was growing up.

“The ’90s had lots of black television and film … a lot of the shows were helmed by black people,” she recalls. “That’s what inspired me to at least try it.”

She may have only been 5 years old when “A Different World” — a spinoff of “The Cosby Show” that took place at a historically black college and ran on NBC from 1987 to 1993 — went off the air, but it left its mark.

But perhaps even more influential was “Love & Basketball.” The 2000 romantic drama, written and directed by Gina Prince-Blythewood, stars Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan as childhood friends who fall for each other while they’re both pursuing careers on the court.

“It took place in my neighborhood in Los Angeles,” says Rae, 35, who grew up in Inglewood. “It was a

Harley Quinn Leads Her Own Band of Villains in DC Universe Series - Watch Trailer

Harley Quinn does not give a single eff about The Joker.

That much is revealed in the official trailer for the DC Universe's R-rated animated series.

“Joker never loved me. He only loves Batman,” Harley says after realizing that her one-time love was only ever using her as a shield.

Hell, the Joker literally hurls his supposed lover at the caped crusader to escape from a dire situation. That's not love, and Harley knows it.

Harley turns to Poison Ivy for some words of wisdom and decides to start a gang of her own.

“If I want a crew, I should be looking for scumbags no one else believes in,” she says with a grin.

Harley's ultimate goal, however, is to land a spot in the Legion of Doom.

“If Joker can get in,” she complains, “so can I!”
