Contagion

Bafflingly strong cast for what’s otherwise a “by numbers” movie without much of a point.  I think the takeaways for me were that the human race can be real dicks when things get tough out there, that Jude Law in a plastic bubble looks like a *real* git, and more than anything, that there are few things as rewarding as the idea of Gwyneth Paltrow’s skull being sawn open.  Probably would never have noticed this film had it not been for a little opportunistic promotion by the Netflix algorithm.
