Blood Diamond (2006)
an action packed film that will hit home with many.
This film was the complete package in casting, directing, cinematography and editing. Djimon Honsou was exquisite as the father desperately using the only leverage he had to reclaim his family and Leonardo DiCaprio was the only choice for the diamond smuggler who marks him as his ticket out of town. Jennifer Connolly should not be forgotten either as the journalist trying to make a difference by getting the impossible story that would 'awaken' the western world to what is occurring. All play their parts brilliantly and convincingly with wonderful chemistry shared between them. The story begins by introducing the main characters and then among the violence and civil unrest in the region, allows their stories to unfold. The direction lets events unfold before you with honesty and emotional intensity, aided greatly by some of the best editing I've seen in film for years. This movie will reach all with a conscience, as it not only lays the guilt for ignoring the conflict, but for aiding it also. To understand, go and see the film. I look forward to seeing it's deserving nominee's at the Oscars.
