5.0 out of 5 stars A must watch for all of us who have bought a diamond at one time or another., 28 Jan 2014
This review is from: Blood Diamond [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
A brilliantly acted , directed and cast film about the atrocious conditions endured during the collection of diamonds in Sierra Leone towards the end of the last century and the beginning of this one. Leonardo DiCaprio is perfectly cast as are all the other main players. The film is very violent but it's not gratuitous as the facts speak for themselves and should be a reminder to all of us who have bought a diamond. It's particularly scathing towards large "diamond cartels" who systematically condone the trade by turning a blind eye or laundering such stones and stockpiling them to keep the price artificially high. If you can stand watching how little certain humans regard other human life and you want to be shaken out of your complacency you must watch this excellent film
