After all we've earned it

It's nice jumping into a film like The Last King Of Scotland without knowing much of the fictional or historical content. An amazing performance by both Forest Whitaker and James McAvoy. And an amazing dynamic between the two, as well. It's a film that discourages and encourages at the same time. It unveils the corruption of government and builds the inspiration that, in each of us, there is a person who longs to do the right thing. The just thing. The action that stares the unjust in the face and says that you will not take what I have (dang, that's deep).

The only qualm with the film was the very abrupt edits which take you from one scene to an entirely different scene in the blink of an eye. But, aside from that, it's a film well made. Rolls perfectly acted. And a story told with much gusto and much humility. Thumbs up, indeed.
