“Don’t Look Up” Is “Dr. Strangelove” for Climate Change

DON'T LOOK UP

Like most comedies, “Don’t Look Up” is probably best seen in theaters. But be prepared: As in “Dr. Strangelove,” the depth of comedy of “Don’t Look Up” is matched by a subtle, profound grief. The end of the movie is unbearably poignant; in particular, Lawrence delivers one line that is clearly the filmmakers explaining why they made this, even if it turns out to be completely futile. There may be a few movies that will make you laugh more and some that make you cry more, but if you add the laughing and crying together, it’s hard to think of anything that puts more emotional points on the board.

I guess the fairest thing to do would be to simply press ahead and introduce the legislation allowing marriage equality and we could have a referendum or survey about what rights to discriminate that Australians will allow. I guess some would wonder: “Why should religious people have to wait till someone else decides when they want to discriminate now?”, but I say that they should just be patient because, with a big change like this, we really need to get it right!
