It's true that certain elements to this film would have to be changed if this film is about apartheid. By leaving the aliens in, you open the film up to those strengths. However, you'd also have to sacrifice a degree of credibility by leaving the film this way. For me, I suppose it just comes down to weighing the pros and cons of both choices against each other. I'd prefer to have the world feel more realistic as opposed to losing a few cool concepts this film has to offer.Takoma1 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 19, 2019 7:43 pmBut you need the sci-fi element in order forWithout it being about aliens it would be a drama about apartheid. And while I would watch a well-made drama about apartheid, the alien technology, the wonderful ambiguity about the ending, those things wouldn't exist.
(And yes, the site is running a bit better for me. It's still kind of slow, and when people post GIFs it totally freezes my screen. I can't figure out what the deal is. Must just be something to do with my Chromebook).
Anyways, I'm glad to see your luck is slightly improving with this site. I don't know a whole lot about technology and all, but all I can recommend is to try changing internet browsers to see if it improves this site.
