    District 9 and Director's earlier work

    Alive In Joburg - Neill Blomkamp from Spy Films on Vimeo.

    So I'm totally stoked to see District 9 by Neill Blomkamp. I haven't followed this much viral marketing since Cloverfield, and while the mock-umentary may turn a lot of people off, its these kinds of films that I love. Putting people in these 'What if this happened in real life' situations and watching raw fear, hate and uncertainty unfold in true form.

    The video above is Blomkamp's earlier work which would become the fore runner of District 9. Aliens are stranded, wanting to go home but good old Uncle Sam has other plans for them. As with Cloverfield, there'll be a lot of people who know they arn't going to like the movie going to see it and unsurprisingly hate it afterwords. XP
