If you’ve never heard the name Neill Blomkamp before, you’ll definitely want to check this guy out. Mr. Blomkamp has been producing short films for a while now, but I think District 9 is his first full lenght movie. He employs a documentary-style, hand-held, cinéma vérité technique, blending his footage seamlessly with naturalistic and photo-realistic computer-generated imagery effects. the result usually is, shall we say, absolutely amazing. District 9 is set to be released on August 14.
