The Last King of Scotland
Forrest Whitaker Rules This Movie
A fascinating portrayal of one of the most infamous dictators in history. Forrest Whitaker is every bit deserving of his Oscar with a nuanced performance of a man who, to put it mildly, was not a nice guy. The historical setting is thoroughly recreated and the camera doesn't flinch from some of the more disturbing elements of Amin's rule, while managing to paint the dictator in a very human light.
