2020 was long and exhausting. Death to 2020 may make some viewers laugh at it. But for others to not. Released to Netflix on December 27, 2020, running for an hour and ten minutes and rated TV-MA, it stars Samuel L. Jackson, Lisa Kudrow, Joe Keery, and Hugh Grant.
The plot begins in January and captures factual clips of the Australian fires, COVID-19 pandemic, the election. The directors pair these videos with the actors, who play a scientist, a politician, and an average person. Laurence Fishburne narrates the timeline.
As a mockumentary: is a year of absurdities and tragedies something we really want to revisit?
The film makes some of us question what its creators were thinking.
