I loved this film! Blomkamp is one of my favorite directors working today. He’s apparently working a niche, though: the cyberpunk superfan (which definitely includes me). But even my girlfriend then loved this movie (she cried a few times, saying it pulled hard on every maternal instinct in her soul! Indeed I also find it very hard to watch at some points). All of his movies are cyberpunk concept art orgies, and I couldn’t be happier to pour over the art books and pause and study nearly every single frame.
