Everyone should watch ORIGINAL INTENT. It is a very clear, compelling, look at the Cultural Marxist attack on the original intent of the Founders of this great republic. It exposes the historical march of Cultural Marxism. It reveals the evils of communism and national socialism. It clarifies the original intent of the Constitution. It helps people to understand clearly the destruction of the money supply and how that affects the economy. And, it provides the keys to freeing the country from enslavement to control by the nationalist and internationalist socialist cabal.
Watching ‘Contagion,’ the newest film from director , is like you’re watching a ‘Friday the 13th’ Movie, and instead of a hockey mask wearing psychopath; you’ve got a virus. And instead of a bunch of idiot teenagers, you’ve got scientists and doctors. It’s an enjoyable film while you are watching it, but once it’s over you see it for all its flaws and general emptiness.Now it’s not a ‘Friday the 13th’ shit-fest – not by any means – It works on a lot of levels. The stunning direction, the cast, the editing, the way it is shot – specifically the way this fictional world feels real. It’s just a shame that the most crucial aspect of the movie is a muddled mess: the script by Scott Burns.
But thanks to the brilliant directorial ability of Soderbergh; the film is elevated above its – frankly – quite rubbish screenplay. But, I’m a little conflicted on ‘Contagion’ – I mean, it defiantly works as an entertaining thrill ride, but I’m not sure if it has succeeded on what it has set out to do. By the time the credits were rolling, I wondered if there was a point to any of what I had seen; besides “Hey horrible shit happens, and sometimes that’s hard to contain.”All of my problems with the movie stem from an intent vs execution battle, and it raged me during the credits. I had genuinely enjoyed the hell out of the movie, but the second it ended I started to ask my self ‘what was the point?’ and ‘Did it resonate with me?’ – well, that was when the movie started to unravel.
‘Contagion’ is a virus/quarantine film in the vein of ‘Outbreak,’ telling a multi-storied reaction of a viral outbreak and tracking the attempt of people to combat/contain it. The virus in ‘Contagion’ is massive, it kills people rapidly – and leaves all of the public/ scientific and government personal scratching their heads as to what to do.The film consists of a huge amount of subplots; we get perspective of the event/s through at least 20 characters, mostly doctors and scientists – all played by very famous people such as , and Laurence Fishburne. The films ‘emotional center’ comes from ’s character – who is impossible to discuss because the events in the first ten minutes are considered spoiler territory – well that, or he doesn’t have much of a character to speak of.

But that’s the issue with the screenplay; that no body has a real ‘character,’ – look, you could make the argument that Matt Damon has a character; but I would say that has more to do with him being a good actor, and the ‘U2’ song played over the “big” scene – anyway, mostly everybody in the movie is either a chess piece used to move the plot forward; or a literal device. Characters like the ones that , John Hawkes and to an extent Kate Winslet play; serve no clear purpose other then to chew up screen-time/offer cheap pity.
To be clearer; much of the character stuff in ‘Contagion’ is fine while you are watching it – as the people seem to take action for a reason, or they seem to behave because of a specific motivation – but the script takes a turn in the last half hour; revealing information about all the characters that is either inconsistent with what was established before, or lazy and manipulative. Some characters are blatantly forgotten about half way through.
