# District 9 by Neil Blomkamp

Imagine a story where aliens are not anymore the bad guys but we, humans, are. The part of Neil Blomkamp's District 9 is an remarkable docu-fiction (alla Peter Watkins or Chris Marker) using alliens as a global metaphor of foreigners as a people and illustrates pretty well how apartheid (the movie takes place in Johannesburg) has some social and urban consequences. District 9 is a slum where people (aliens) are forced to live, exploited by a nigerian-mafia and controled by a omni-present military surveillance.
Second part of the movie has a interesting Cronenbergian aspect but Blomkamp looses the docu-fiction mean which makes the movie being much less amazing.
