The Last King of Scotland | #TBT Trailer | 20th Century FOX

As Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, Forest Whitaker gives “one of the greatest performances of modern movie history” (Wall Street Journal), one that the Associated Press calls “nothing short of Oscar® worthy.” This is Amin’s incredible story as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a young Scotsman who becomes the volatile leader’s personal physician, due in part to Amin’s unexpected passion for Scottish culture — Amin even proclaims himself “The Last King of Scotland”. Seduced by Amin’s charisma and blinded by decadence, Garrigan’s dream life becomes a waking nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape. Inspired by real people and events, this gripping, suspenseful stunner is filled with performances you will never forget.

    I remember crying in the cinema while watching this movie as a kid. My parents underestimated the horror depicted in this movie. I remeber it being great though.

    There are times when Forest' face portrays two villains at the same time, one deep and hidden, the other exposed. A well-deserved oscar, golden globe, and bafta.

    All of these years I thought the character of Dr Nicholas was based on a real person smh I should've known that it's wasn't & many the event's in the movie would've been fabricated to garner more excitement.

    Idi amin is potrayed as bad even was n't that bad.
    1. Asians owned most rich bussiness and ugandans were labourers and workers in them with asian bosses making huge profits. So he expelled asains. It would have been better had he made an agreement with asain bussiness owners to pay more taxes,better wages etcs, better rules for ugandan workers.
    2 In this movie an assasination attempt is made on idi amin. He faced 8 coups in real besides countless assasination attempts. He survived like power rulers do by eliminating those who wanted to eliminate him. Iron cuts iron and in africa at that time violence had to be dealt with violence.Their is not footage of people fed to crocodiles and the killing numbers are exaggerated
    3. This doctor was clearly a big fool,he had sexaul affair with president we was working for.What did he expect amin will do when he finds out that his wife is cheating on him with his person doctor.
    4 Western media demonized him because he harmed western interests in uganda and did not let them exploit uganda

    I'm 54 now and I remember that, as a child, I was terrified of Idi Amin, because I saw a very graphic documentary about his violent regime. And I've never forgotten one of the shots of Idi Amin's private torture rooms. There was old blood splattered on the floor and walls, but the thing that really got to me was a man's hand print in blood on the wall.
