Steven Soderbergh's 'Contagion' and Gavin O'Connor's 'Warrior' get the full review treatment.

Other areas traversed...

- The Harvard Film Archive's 'American Punk' series ruled, like way seriously.
- Matt Damon is a great leading man because he's a great character actor.
- 'Suburbia' in 35mm is a trip.
- Sonny Chiba needs his own retrospective at Harvard.
- Eating during a movie can be exceptionally disruptive; sometimes as much as talking or texting.
- Gweneth Paltrow is a good sport. How can you not love what she lets Soderbergh do to her character in 'Contagion'?
- Find and watch 'Linda, Linda, Linda.'
