If DiCaprio was looking for a comedy alerting to the urgency of the climate crisis for which he is the most prominent spokesperson, he likely found it with “Don’t Look Up: Cosmic Denial”. A brilliant, corrosive, and funny Netflix comedy from Adam McKay!
It’s possible that the Academy Award-winning Academy will find “Don’t Look Up: Cosmic Denial” a little too hip for them.

And then, together, the cast of “Don’Look Up: Cosmic Denial” brings together several already Oscar-winning actors. Thereby, Leonardo DiCaprio, himself, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett. An American colleague calculated that together, this cast already totaled eleven Oscars. At the very least, one would expect him to get a bunch of nominations.

Named “Comète Dibiasky”, named after the student played by the wonderful Jennifer Lawrence, will be the stake of a campaign of the two scientists and will lead them to the White House. Where presides a female version of Trump – Meryl Streep has obviously had fun in this role – which at first makes them hang around for nearly twenty-four hours. The President of the USA is fed up with meetings where it is about the end of the world and don’t be shy to say it.

The end of the world is just right
The announcement of the end of the world is finally timely for the President of the USA who sees how to use it to win the first round of the next elections. Here she gets on the war footing and launches a large-scale space operation to detonate the comet.
As we can see, the film abounds in scriptwriting finds, criticism at all costs, aligns characters of pure comedy very inspired by reality … We are even entitled to some beautiful scenes with Timothée Chalamet as a young rock’n’roll skater which holds the high in DiCaprio. This is to say that we love it!
