Hollywood Buzz #136

O que se diz lá fora sobre CONTAGION, de Steven Soderbergh:

«One aspect of the film is befuddling. Alan Krumwiede (Jude Law) is a popular blogger with conspiracy theories about the government's ties with drug companies. His concerns are ominous but unfocused. Does he think drug companies encourage viruses? The blogger subplot doesn't interact clearly with the main story lines and functions mostly as an alarming but vague distraction.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

«Soderbergh's smart, spooky thriller about a thicket of contemporary plagues - a killer virus, rampaging fear, an unscrupulous blogger - is as ruthlessly effective as the malady at its cool, cool center.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times.

«Without fully rounded characters, it's hard to care who lives or dies in what amounts to an extended procedural on how disease prevention organizations might respond to such a scenario.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.

«The pressure cooker plot calls for intense performances all around but first among equals are Winslet and Ehle.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.

«Here's a scare-the-crap-out-of-you medical thriller about a viral pandemic that will have the immediate post-screening effect of causing a handwashing stampede.»
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.
