(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

DON'T LOOK UP seems to be a "humorous" version of DEEP IMPACT, if Earth being struck by a "planet-killer" comet can be presented as humorous. For example, the credits are presented in a way that seems too fun-loving for the seriousness of the topic. Then again, DR. STRANGELOVE was a success. It is definitely a satire, though whether of climate change deniers, or anti-vaxxers, or anti-maskers, or of some other group is not clear.

Released 12/24/21; available on Netflix. Rating: high +2 or 8/10.
