"Go back to your banana tree, nigger..." I say, quoting his lines from The Crying Game. "You like that one, huh?" he says with a smile. Yeah, I love that. That and "But, you didn't persuade me," from The Last King of Scotland. "You enjoyed a portrayal of Idi Amin? Wow, I never would have guessed," he says with a knowing smile.
