Contagion (2011)

Hope you're not coming down with something
Starting off with Day 2, the viewer is thrown into a wild ride of a movie.  A super contagious disease spreads around the globe.  Steven Soderbergh's latest film gives us glimpse into what the fallout might look like.  With too many stars to list, this is a haunting reminder of how small our world has become with intercontinental air travel.  Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Marion Cotillard (Inception) are two of the my favorites in the apocalyptic drama.  I love the ambiguity of this film - Soderbergh leaves loose ends that the viewer can either tie up or leave untied.  And I love the payoff which brings everything full circle.

Contagion is one sick film with 4 out of 5 Poblanos!
