Brutal and Intense film

The last hour of this film is violent, gruesome, and intense. There is also nudity (butts and breasts are shown) and a very severe sex scene (with plenty of nudity). There is some swearing such as about a dozen uses of f**k, 3 uses of s**t, 3 uses of a*s, and one use of bl**dy. Even if this film is iffy it is a great thriller.

Pretty good doc

Having done a research paper on Idi Amin for school some time back, this movie struck me with great interest to see. I was somewhat disappointed that it is from the Scot's point-of-view, and doesn't really seem to expose Amin in ALL his horror. Still, it's a great movie, and does an excellent job of showing the softer and later harder sides of Amin (with props to Whitaker). There are plenty of disturbing scenes, and some unnecessarily vivid sexual scenes. Fine for a middle-teen, but nothing under that, and would probably prove uncomfortable to watch with a parent.
