The Last King of Scotland
I've seen a lot of films based on historical characters and events lately. The Last King of Scotland is one of the best this year. The story is based on a novel, told from the point of view of the personal physician of Idi Amin. Amin starts out as engaging, and even likeable, then is revealed as a monster. An intense film with amazing acting, brilliant editing, cool music and graphic insight to the political climate in Uganda in the 70's.
