Who Killed Captain Alex?

Who Killed Captain Alex? ★★★★

Absolutely amazing. The DIY production, the gleeful violence, the feverish "Video Joker" emcee narration, they all mark this (at least to my questionable mind) as pure, completely guileless exploitation cinema. This is the work of people excited to see themselves on screen, an unmediated product of their own self-image. Outsiders and smarter people than myself can dissect it as ethnography, and they should, but above all it just wants to be "Uganda's First Action Movie", and it's great.
