It's been a while since I've seen this. Happy to report that it is still a mighty fine movie, despite Oscar nominated Jaye Davidson being a little amateurish in the acting dept. My guess is, that he wasn't hired (or indeed nominated) for his acting prowess.
Standout for me is Forrest Whittaker in the first half of the movie. He's the one who should've received the nomination!
That aside, it's such an interesting movie, which is difficult to categorise. Part political thriller, part love story, part revenge movie perhaps; but all in all, a great movie.
