What an epic undertaking. This was an ambitious film attempting to show the brutality, both subtle and overt, involved in colonialism and domination. A lot works, the film comes close to greatness, but a few things fall short. While treated with sympathy, I would have liked to see the black population showing some more agency. Surely they had their own plots and suspicions that could have been illustrated. And related, a general back and forth between the competing factions could have been stronger. But overall an impressive film with themes that I wish more filmmakers would try to tackle.
