    Last King of Scotland

    Just saw this movie and it was amazing, a mixture of fiction and non-fiction all theoretically based on real events with amazing acting. The rise and fall of Idi Amin with a inside look into how he took over the country and begins his brutal dictatorship. Great performance by Forrest Whitaker and a totally engrossing film.

    Super well done. The acting was good enough to be disturbing...

    Good flick. I think we already had a thread on it, no?

    The torture scene is how I threaten to rack up FRL when he gets out of line.

    A whole PAGE? Good god man, tell me you double-spaced!




    And Whittaker is amazing, he completely made the last season of The Shield. This one has been on my list; thanks for the reminder.

    Pretty sure that after 3rd grade, a page doesn't count as a paper any more, much less a research paper.

    That said, the movie was awesome, great acting, disturbing, based on some fact. Great.
