I would love to see the spanish/american war accurately portrayed. And the following Phillipine/american war (which was more a massacre, attempt at genocide, than a war)no way hollywood would touch this
I think it is important that films like hotel rwanda get made, but these events are always made with a positive and uplifting spin.....i understand that its necessary to have a few people want to go see the movie.....just want the truth...thats why the doc was better (although Don Cheadle and Sophie Okinedo were amazing)......
btw, best political film ever made was battle of algiers......it's amazing how Gillo Pontecorvo made it look so real.....it looks like a doc....this film deserves a post all its own....
