||One of my altime favorites|
Amistad movie Adam's speech at the end of the movie was amazing. The fact that he is humble, yet such a hardass just gave me the goosebumps! It was amazing.
By Lauren (Sarasota, FL)
Amistad video Everything that Spielberg got right in _Schindler's List_, he gets wrong here: the director's didactic presence is too strongly felt; the actors' love their dialogue, rather than what it means; and we are allowed to feel the screen time too frequently.
