"District 9" by Neill Blomkamp;

"Elia Suleiman" by Elia Souleiman (AKA "Le temps qu'il reste" (Fr)), nominated for the Golden Palm at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

The reviews should particularly address the gender and postcolonial dimension of the movies.
The review should be informative and evaluative, without being dismissive: that is, the reviewer should find some value in the work being reviewed.

Reviews in French, Spanish, Italian are also welcomed.
