MOVIE: Last King Of Scotland

Forest Whitaker's performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin is hypnotic. And James McAvoy's role as Doctor/Advisor Nicholas Garrigan is a stunning feat for a relative newcomer.

Well written, well directed, well acted. Fantastic movie whose only flaw is that I wanted more more more. The film seemed too short. And I was eager to have more sensational dialog from Whitaker. The film was all about the interaction of the two characters, and I couldn't get enough of it.

Great rental for a rainy day. Not sure if is would be good on a date. Definitely not something for the kids or the elderly. But just right, for me.
