Film – Quick Thoughts: District 9

District 9
District 9, directed by Neill Blomkamp
Written by: Neill Blomkamp, Terri Tatchell
Starring: Sharlto Copley
My rating: 5 of 5

The first film I’ve watched in 2012. It’s as excellent as I remember. Wikus is a complicated character, as he’s not nice in the beginning and almost everything he does through the film is selfishly motivated, but it’s impossible not to feel sorry for him. He’s a low-level nobody promoted through family connections. Success is his to lose and he really, really loses it.

“Fookin’ prawns!”
