I just came back from seeing District 9 with some friends, including Betty, & wow: fantastic movie. It’s like Kafka via Chomsky with a little Giger thrown in. Do go. You’ll be in competent hands. I had moments where I thought I would need to leave the theatre – it gets very intense emotionally – but just as easily there’d be comic relief or some other distraction from the growing dread you feel watching.
& It delivers in so many ways: emotionally, politically, & lots of things blow up in cool ways. What more could you want? Go see it while it’s still in theatres; it’s totally worth the big screen.
