We went to see District 9 last night and loved it. Highly recommended. I daren’t say more.

My final thought about NCGLFF is to share one of the best things in any film. In Weak Species there’s a character who is the resident beautiful monster of his high school. He’s decided that as an ongoing piece of performance art he’s going to have sex with every other gay guy in his school and then make them feel terrible about themselves. He’s not a nice kid. At one point we see him working on a sketch and the camera angle shifts to reveal that instead of sketching something he’s written the following:

MY FUTURE:

OPTIONS:

  • ART
  • THERAPY
  • MAKE ENEMIES

I can’t begin to tell you how hard I laughed. It’s every kid who was too smart for school, ever.
