I caught the midnight showing as well ... lots of talent at work in the movie. The director is clearly somebody we should have on our radar, and the guy who played Wikus was quite good. But the movie was also disappointing overall. It tried to do too many things and in the process was unable to do any of them very well. Perhaps on a second viewing, things will be more clear. But after digesting things, at present, I'm giving it 2/4 stars.
