Lee Camp and Adam McKay on Social Criticisms and Government Corruption

This week on VIP Lee Camp looks back to a 2016 interview with the director of the Netflix smash-hit “Don’t Look Up.” Adam McKay is responsible for brilliant social criticisms in movies like “The Big Short” that took on the 2008 financial crisis and a satire of corporate media in “Anchorman.” His latest movie skewers inaction in the face of climate change. It’s funny how this half-decade old conversation between comedians is still relevant today as climate change, inequality, and media corruption continue unchallenged.

  1. Good to see critical thinking and common sense along with humor can expose the most propagandized and brainwashed nation on Earth…the U.S.A. Great movie too. Thank You All

  2. All Adam McKay movies are very good! “Don’t Look Up” is the best of the best so far. Just switch from comet scenario directly to Dr McPherson about Climate Extinction. Same same only actual about NOW!
    .
    Please Adam to show the entire sham of USA (and I’m American!) about;
    – Smearing the actual truth from L or R
    – Religions OWN our country* See Congress, Senate, Supreme Courts, Judges, media

  3. Don’t Look Up is a good movie, but as with all other commentary on this issue, it fails to advocate the only real solutions to global warming/climate change, which are lowering human population and living a lot more simply & naturally.

    The Big Short was a good movie too. But it didn’t get to the real cause of the Great Recession, which was the re-defining of “insurance” caused by the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act under Clinton. This re-defining allowed banks to use credit default swaps to insure mortgages, which was not allowed under Glass-Steagall. Now banks could give subprime loans, because they were insured by AIG, and the banks no longer cared that those loans were very high risk. That’s why the government bailed out AIG; if it hadn’t, the entire world economy would have probably collapsed (AIG would not have been able to pay the massive numbers of insurance claims by the banks, which in turn would have caused the banks to go under, which in turn would have caused everything else to collapse).
