synopses, from memory, of movies I only dimly remember
Monday, April 25, 2011
Slaves are horribly mistreated on a slave ship—I think maybe brought up on deck naked during a thunderstorm and thrown overboard?—and (a) what's being depicted is an atrocity and (b) I'm a dude and not gay, BUT, sorry, it was impossible not to marvel at the penises flopping around. Later, Anthony Hopkins looks at a flower in a glass bowl and then delivers an inspiring speech before an old-timey Supreme Court.
So: what I remember about Amistad—penises, flower, Supreme Court.
