Bash Uwe Boll all you want, but I think the man's starting to learn that when he uses his own material (or at least something that's not a video game) he can do great work. Rampage, Postal, Stoic, and now Darfur...all great movies. Sadly, a lot of people will probably overlook them just because Boll has directed some bad movies. OK...truly awful movies...but still.

The movie itself is pretty straight forward. It follows a group of international journalists into a small village in Darfur. The interview people, take pictures...you know, the stuff you'd expect journalists to do. When the village is attacked they have to decide how much of a difference they really want to make (especially given the impotent security detail they're given). Yes, the violence in this movie can be pretty brutal, but I've seen far worse and all Boll is really doing is telling the truth. As troubling as it is to watch, it really is worth it. I guess my question is where all the "A-list" celebrities like Clooney who won't shut up about Darfur...yet haven't made a movie about it. Seriously...it took Uwe Boll to do this? That's almost as depressing as the subject matter of the movie.
