District 9 by Neill Blomkamp

Top of the month September 2009: District 9

Best prawn movie ever!

Why should you go see District 9 by Neill Blomkamp, right now?

– Because you will have empathy for christopher, a fully CGI character!
– Because for once this is a truly original sci-fi concept and it’s not happening in the USA!
– Because it’s a great reminder of the history of South Africa – apartheid (District Six) AND post-apartheid (Zimbabwean immigrants).

Runners up :Mary and Max by Adam Elliot and (500) Days of Summer by Marc Webb.
(not to mention The Hurt Locker by Kathryn Bigelow & L’Affaire Farewell by Christian Carion)
