Welcome to Episode 63! We welcome Gemma and Annabel from the Anthill Podcast back to Flixwatcher to review Gemma’s choice the 2009 Neill Blomkamp film District 9. Billed as a Peter Jackson presents District 9 was the breakout film for Sharlto Copley. Filmed and set in Johannesburg it mixes (fake) found footage and documentary styles and is was inspired by the true life events of District Six from the apartheid era. The film, despite providing some genuine comic moments, addresses themes of racism, xenophobia, bureaucracy and refugees and immigrants while moving between sci fi, body horror and action genres. District 9 has aged pretty well and it’s themes are still relevant today and it’s all held together by Copley’s performance and interaction with the ‘prawns’.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='65']Our guests and Flixwatcher scored District 9 highly across most categories bringing the overall score to 4.1 (despite Kobi’s low score for repeat viewing!).
