    the obama line is probably my favorite ever and this is just all so perfectly crafted. it’s bonkers that this was his debut

    Don't Look Up

    ★½

    mckay briefly suggests that meryl streep is hillary and then leans full-on into “don’t look up” as a MAGA-type call, which pretty closely mirrored my hope for this project turning into laughable pity throughout its (way too long) runtime. this would be so much more interesting if it parodied liberal messaging about climate change while they parade capitalism about as a solution to the crisis, but i think mckay showed his true colors here. bottom line is: he doesn’t try to convince anybody, when that’s exactly what this type of film should strive to do.
