This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
This film is just a wrong happening. A fictitious telling of the life of an African dictator through the eyes of a white man who never existed? Yes Forest's acting is strong in it, but this film morally is all the way WRONG
Honestly, I had no idea why I'm waiting so long to watch this movie. It's hard to discuss THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND without mentioning Forest Whitaker frantic portrayal as the infamous Ugandan leader - Idi Amin. He can a very fun and frightening person at the same time. No wonder, Whitaker won an Oscar for his performance. James McAvoy is also great in this movie. THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND has a great fart scene :)
