Blood Diamond

It took a while for Blood Diamond (2006) to get to me since I put it on hold at the library.  The movie was in demand and having just seen it I can see why.  It’s a heck of a good film with amazing acting by Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer Connelly.  I think that both Hotel Rwanda (2004) and The Constant Gardener (2005) had better stories but all 3 movies are worth watching if you are interested in Africa.  They are devastating yet breathtaking at the same time.  Leonardo’s performance in Blood Diamond, his accent, his ability to move from terrorist to someone who seems to genuinely care… wow.  TIA.
