a subtle knife: reflections on myth, politics, and desire

A very interesting blog from Cape Town, South Africa...

I came to this site via a link to Andries Du Toit's marvelous review and analysis of the 2009 science fiction movie District 9.  I sensed there were currents running through that movie that I only just perceived due to my brief exposure to South African politics and sociology as the country prepared to emerge from the apartheid era in the mid-90s.  Du Toit calls out in detail currents, sub-currents, and threads that may not have been apparent to most American viewers of the film.  Thoughtful and provocative.
