    Having cut his teeth on documentaries, Kevin Macdonald acts as if a shaky-cam aesthetic alone is enough to fuel dramatic tension.

    Mr. Whitaker and Mr. McAvoy head a first-rate cast that helps The Last King of Scotland to illuminate one of the many dark chapters in recent African history.

    If this genius turn by Whitaker (he starred in Bird and The Crying Game) doesn't earn an Oscar nomination, then those little statues will lose what little meaning they have.

    Whitaker's dedicated, nuanced performance is excellent and lifts the film from some unsteady early moments.

    Houston Chronicle

    See the movie for Whitaker alone: He's possessed by evil and possesses it wholly, rendering the film (and everyone in it) his plaything.

    Detroit Free Press

    A good movie elevated by Whitaker's pitch-perfect performance.

    Captivating hyper-realism, a taut political thriller, and the performance of the year.

    The Last King Of Scotland will no doubt be picking up an armful of gongs come award season, and rightly so; it's not only lovingly shot and acted, but it evolves into one of the best thrillers of recent memory too.


    June 25, 2008

    Whitaker pulls off a spectacular thespian coup that has Oscar-winner stamped all over it.

    Its ultimate effect is that of shallow self-congratulation.


    February 28, 2008

    Whitaker portrays Amin as funny, vulnerable, tender and enigmatic -- all without ever letting us forget he was a maniacal monster.
