Uh yeah. Last King of Scotland. Very good movie. Did not care for the meat hooks at the end. Beats out the eye-ball squish in Kill Bill by a considerable margin.
Otherwise. It was very good. Mirrored some documentaries I had seen on Uguanda and the slow understanding of madness that the rest of the world had toward his regime. Anyone who wants to see what a modern Hitler might have looked like, Idi Amin is a good start. Very charismatic. Very, very ruthless. And a bit eccentric. And didn't like the Jews much either, or at least pal'ed up with the PLO during their heyday. I found myself both revolted and amused by the character. Which I think is the proper reaction to a madman. So yeah, I'd say that was a well-deserved Oscar.
