Movie: Amistad (Multiple Languages, 1997)
- Steven Spielberg always keeps showing his name up to the question of 'Who is the biggest of them all?' & here again proves his mettle by deftly handling an absolutely intense sensitive subject.
- The roles that walk away with top honours are those of the African Cinque, the relentless attorney played by McConaughey & the ex president Hopkins' cameo!
- The core team members of Spielberg - cameraman,editor & music director are at their best again with John Williams providing some touching background tracks.
- There are appreciable scenes aplenty - The differing idealogies of the so-defined 'sophisticated' Americans & 'backward' Africans are expressed with tactful sarcasm in their varied definitions of terms like 'Almost';'Chief' etc.
