First screened in June 2016
Director: Neill Blomkamp. Cast: Dev Patel, Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Yo-Landi Visser, Nina, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sigourney Weaver, Brandon Auret, Johnny Selema, Robert Hobbs, Kevin Otto, Eugene Khumbanyiwa. Screenplay: Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell.

Twitter Capsule: Even Blomkamp's "good" film is over-stuffed, iffy on race, and wonkily structured. All those problems magnify in this one.

VOR:   I'll at least call this an interesting failure, full of crazily competing discourses and an unusual spotlight on South African street cultures.
