The Last King of Scotland

Forest Whitaker dominates this performance as a perverse ruler/killer of an African 3rd world country. James McAvoy (Wanted) holds his ground on screen as Whitaker’s newly appointed doctor. The tale takes us through lust, loss, genocide and having to make the choice of he or I. The settings were spectacular which only makes you dive deeper into this story. It is a shame that situations like this are not only real, but far too common in desolate regions. Solid B+
