The future of the 1 percent - Elysium'

Good science fiction has a tendency to use the future as a mirror reflecting the concerns of the present. Societal concerns and issues can be addressed with a degree of remove, allowing them to be looked at with fresh eyes.

Writer/director Neill Blomkamp gave us one of the best sci-fi allegories of recent years with 2009's 'District 9.' That film used alien refugees and the bureaucratic agencies that dealt with them as a surrogate for apartheid, resulting in one of the most thought-provoking films of the year and one of the best science fiction offerings of the past decade.
