Elysium (dir. Neil Blomkamp)

     Easily down one of the greatest contemporary science fiction films ever made was Neil Blomkamp's disturbing, visceral, and moving South African set masterpiece District 9. A film so out of left field yet so dead-on-the-money it even got a rare Oscar nomination for Best Picture, not something Science fiction and horror films often do. Blomkamp has returned with Matt Damon, Diego Luna, Sharito Copely (from District 9)  and a perfectly cast Jodi Foster for the class warfare sci-fi film ELYSIUM

2159 Earth is a cesspool and the rich live in peaceful luxury in orbit on grand  space stations/condos-the ultimate gated community. Until someone sets about restoring some balance to the equation...
