Hotel Rwanda (2004)

But Schindler's List was an artistic rendering of a tragedy, while writer/director Terry George goes for dramatic realism much closer to Roland Joffe's The Killing Fields or Oliver Stone's Salvador. He's so successful that even the little dramatic tricks used to tie together disparate events glide smoothly and unobtrusively with the journalistic flow. George depicts Rusesabagina as a charmer and a wheeler-dealer with a passive side; he can't bring himself to believe that help is not on the way. read more...

Dead Man Walking (1995)

Sean Penn's Matthew Poncelet has a high Elvis-style hairdo and talks in a mumbled accent; some of his words slip away from you. He is a convicted murderer. Hollywood dictates that this either be a "likable" character or an over the top "villain" who chomps up the scenery. Penn plays him as an angry man, an honest man, whom we can see as a real person. As we grow to see him like this, we see that we don't want him to die. read more...
