TGB Breakdown Ep 14: Neill Blomkamp's District 9 (Guest: Brian Roan)
by Tim Buel
August 20, 2013
On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, hosts Tim & Jeremy are joined by The Film Stage Show host Brian Roan (from Episode #166) for a spoiler-filled discussion on Neill Blomkamp's feature debut District 9, the 2009 South African sci-fi action movie which introduced us to Sharlto Copley. The purpose of Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plots and theories in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully challenge our listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.
Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one for Neill Blomkamp's District 9). You've been WARNED!
