Forrest Whittaker’s performance as Amin is terrifying, I’ve said for a long time that Whittaker is an amazing actor and he proves that in this performance. Towards the end the film becomes quite grisly as you might expect given its setting. Nonetheless it was an excellent film, and well worth watching.
