The Daly Planet Podcast – Episode 36: Deconstructing Blomkamp

This week on the podcast, Scott and Matt get to together in the next installment of their deconstructing a director series, this time focusing on Neill Blomkamp. In 2009, his first film District 9 was a rousing success and he was heralded as the next big Science Fiction director. 7 years later, after two disappointing follow ups in Elysium and last year’s horrible Chappie, Blomkamp’s career appears to be at a crossroads. Just what the heck happened? Join us as we try to figure it out.
