Hotel Rwanda

By Bryan • entertainment, random world • 24 Nov 2004

I was wondering when a film was going to be made about this.

    Hey B

    If you haven’t already, and you can find it, I strongly suggest you read “Shake Hands with the Devil” by LGen Romeo Dallaire. I just finished it and it was absolutely incredible. He doesn’t hold anything back when it comes to criticizing western countries for their complacency, or certain individuals for not doing more when they could have. After reading his book, I can draw a lot of parallels between what happened in Rwanda and what is happening right now in Sudan, especially in terms of the unwillingness of the West to take action.

    As for the movie, I’m not sure if I’m going to see it, because after watching the trailer’s and reading stuff about it, it sounds like the people who made it took out quite a large creative license on it. Although I do agree with you that its about time a movie was made, however inaccurate, because a lot of people still don’t know that the genocide ever took place. Anyway, if you get a chance to see it, let me know how it is.

    Yeah, I’d like to get my hands on that book; however, we’re coming up a little short in the literary department here…so it might be awhile!
