Don’t Look Up is a sledgehammer satire that skewers America’s political discourse and social media fixation. Director/writer Adam McKay uses barbed black comedy to show our inability to agree on an obvious apocalyptic threat. His premise has a comet heading towards Earth. Narcissistic leaders, coupled with entrenched red state/blue state divisions, prevent agreement on impending doom you can literally see coming. The film has laugh out loud moments, but goes overboard in its depiction of selfishness and ineptitude.
