District Nine

District Nine tells the all too familiar story of discrimination and oppression by the majority in an near-future human/alien (as in extraterrestrial aliens) context, set in Johannesburg it so happens. For fear of spoiling it I’ll just say it’s the best movie I’ve seen in recent memory, with cautionary note that it isn’t for the squeamish. Great original story, good acting/direction, strong screenplay, decent special effects, with nice dose of humor and insight, filmed as a faux documentary. Otherwise, go see it!
