Contagion makes the world feel connected, which is why it’s so much more vast than it appears to be. The movie more than works as a star-powered thriller—you’re getting the casual best of everyone here, especially Fishburne, Winslet, and Ehle. But it’s also, like so many of Soderbergh’s movies, a feast of insightful, intellectually rich filmmaking. Contagion is a small movie, but it harbors vast things.
