It's a powerful and (sometimes) difficult movie to watch but it's certainly worth the effort. And while there is lots that I can say about it, a number of others have already said it better, so I'm just going to recommend you read the following (all of which, unfortunately, have some spoilers):
- 'An Anthropologist in District 9' by Eric Michael Johnson [ScienceBlogs]
- 'Alien Apartheid? A Race-Aware Viewing Guide for District 9' by Adrienne Maree Brown [RaceWire]
- 'Harry has seen DISTRICT 9 three times and I am looking forward to many more!!!' by Harry Knowles [Ain't It Cool News]
- 'Capone Chats With DISTRICT 9 Star Sharlto Copley' by Capone [Ain't It Cool News]
- 'Capone Sits Down With DISTRICT 9 Director/Co-Writer Neill Blomkamp!!' by Capone [Ain't It Cool News]
What I will say, however, is that I seriously recommend you go watch it. It's the best movie I've seen all year.
