Suddenly he’s everywhere.
First of all – Ryzsard Kapuscinski was working on a book about Idi Amin when he died – Or maybe he finished it, not sure. One of the chapters in his book about Africa was devoted to Idi Amin – awesome, it was my favorite chapter.
Second of all – Forest Whitaker’s brilliant piece of acting – which just won him an Oscar. I’m so happy. That guy (Whitaker, I mean) has been around forever and … I’m just always so happy to see him. He makes a movie better just by being in it. (Ahem. Ahem. However, even he couldn’t save this monstrosity – but I consider that a point in his FAVOR, actually.) Integrity oozes off of him.
Third of all – I added Barbet Shroeder’s documentary about Idi Amin on my Netflix queue (hahaha, I have to keep reminding myself of the coolness of my Netflix queue – Yeah, whatever, I have a Netflix queue, yeah, uh huh, it’s not a big deal, whatever) … but anyway. I’ve heard about this documentary for years – it sounds chilling, and … well, right up my alley. Wacko dictator? Throbbing personality cult? Corruption, violence, political insanity? Count me in. So that will arrive whenever.
Fourth of all – I go to one of my favorite sites this morning – and see this.
