  2. marcorenton's rating of the film General Idi Amin Dada

    I come from a very poor family. I wanted to tell you this.

  3. dave's rating of the film General Idi Amin Dada

    Scary to see how such a despicable and obviously insane person could at the same time be so likable and achieve such a global status. Film was pretty good. Not the greatest documentary I've ever seen but worth watching.

  4. Justin's rating of the film General Idi Amin Dada

    The most powerful documentary made to date.

  5. Matthew Martens's rating of the film General Idi Amin Dada

    More than enough rope here. Props to the Suicide Revolutionary Jazz Band for grace under pressure; to the doctors of 1970s Uganda, who look like they could use a drink; to Tanzania's President Nyerere for dignity in the face of relentless kookiness, and finally, to the three insufficiently revolutionary wives lucky enough to secure a divorce from Amin. On the other hand, their nightmare surely didn't end there.

  6. Erik Villasenor's rating of the film General Idi Amin Dada

    what a frightening portrait, Amin's such a charismatic man that it's hard to read through the cracks. It's very terrifying to me that I came to some what like this man then I remeber "He killed 100,000's of people!" An eyeopening documentary that looks gorgeous and helps me remember why I fear politics.

  7. Luke's rating of the film General Idi Amin Dada

    Barbet Schroeder is the documentarian of the 70's.
