I finally caught Attack the Block (took my own sweet time yeah) and it was fucking brilliant! One of my favourite sci-fi movie of all time. I also like the fact that the protagonist wasn’t your stereotypical white hero, instead he’s black and a leader of a street gang. Even if it was a sci-fi comedy horror film, it also touches on racial issues people of color experienced. The scene where John Boyega’s character Moses, mentioned about the government (white authority in general) breeding aliens to get rid of black people faster broke my heart because figuratively, it is true. White people have been abusing their privilege on people of color and it hurts. The only bummer is that not everyone from the gang manages to survive the invasion ; ^ ; This film is such a gem and I really want to watch another film with a poc as a lead character so badly. Any recommendations?
