No telling how many infectious thingies might occupy this frame, but the entity at right is Steven Soderbergh.
No telling how many infectious thingies might occupy this frame, but the entity at right is Steven Soderbergh.

Kathleen Murphy says: "Steven Soderbergh's super-creepy Contagion does for pandemic what the Oscar-winning director did for drug Traffic back in 2000. Mimicking the insidious spread of coke-related ills, he tracks a lethal little virus—bat-borne, then transmitted to a piglet—as it metastasizes out of a friendly handshake to become a world-killer. A panic-worthy journey for sure, but no need to buckle up for fast-cutting, tension-building, apocalyptic action—or anything else that might significantly raise your blood pressure. Less hysterical than hushed, more numbing than terrifying, Contagion is closer to documentary—an imagined record of how global citizenry might realistically react to monumental crisis."
