The Last King of Scotland - April 6th 2009, 01:59 AM

We just watched The Last King of Scotland with Forrest Whittaker in my English class. I loved it. Has anyone else seen it?

It's about Amin, the once dictator of Uganda and a Scot, Nicholas Garrigan who, through some unusual circumstances, becomes his private physicican.

If you have seen it, tell me what you think.
If you haven't, I definintely recommend it!

Congrats Canada's Juniors! 5 in a row!
Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain.
Week before, they all seemed the same.
And oh, I ain't wastin' time no more
Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.
--The Allman Brothers Band

Things seem impossible until you start to do them.

PM me anytime. I love to talk. :]

I loved this movie. I thought it was beautifully done and I recommend seeing it. That some scene when he finds out what happened to that one woman is so gruesome though.

As long as we can dream, there will be unicorns.

I've watched it, and enjoyed it at the time, though I have terrible memory with any movies I've watched . I do remember the part where the guy sneaks away in the plane though!

I'll have to watch it again sometime.

It's a very good film. The whole cast, but Forrest Whittaker especially, perform really well.

I thought it was an incredible film

I hadnt heard of Amin before and wasnt aware of what had happened and as such was completely drawn in by the nice guy image along with the main character and it came as an equal shock to me when it turned out how bad he was. It was so well done. Even if that one seen was a bit gruesome :s

I used to be indecisive... but now I'm not so sure
