Science Fiction Tricked Hollywood Into Making the Year's Most Radical Film
Elysium, Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi thriller, is expected to be the highest grossing film this weekend. It lacks the nuance of Blomkamp's great District 9, but it's still exponentially more radical than your average Hollywood fare. It's all but an open cry for universal health care, redistributive tax policies, and immigration policy reform. And it delivers all of the above with a CGI cyborg fist to the face.
