the biology is not fighting bacteria

Neill Blomkamp, the guy who directed that fonky Citroen dancing Transformer ad mentioned around here sometime back, has a new short - this one about alien invasion in Johannesburg. At 6+ minutes long, it's a fat 80MB download - available at
archive.org (updated to the new, modern streaming format right here. It's cool stuff - worth the DL wait.
Didn't care for most of the alien prosthetic effects, and the black/blurry bars over the eyes of the invaders (what, to protect their identity?) was a bit much, but otherwise a solid concept, very good FX, dramatic score by Clinton Shorter, and a generally authentic, eerie atmoshphere.
