CNN - In a grand science fiction tradition, "Don't Look Up" is using a disaster-movie framework as a metaphor for a reality-based crisis, with a huge comet hurtling toward Earth as a surrogate for indifference to addressing climate change. At the film's core, writer-director Adam McKay, who wrote the script with journalist/activist David Sirota, delivers a very pointed treatise on the dysfunctional state of current politics and media, in which everyone is so myopic as to be unable to focus on an existential threat. The title is meant to reflect the inevitable endpoint of that, with a bury-your-head-in-the-sand approach to impending doom. The movie sounds quite interesting for the holidays, doesn't it?
