White Hunter Black Heart (1990): review- 8/10

In the late forties, an American film director goes to Africa to make a film, but is distracted by the chance of shooting an elephant.

A study of arrogance in various guises- rudeness, racism, insensitivity to others, callousness, vainglory, machismo and disrespect for nature.

These qualities are personified by the white hunter and in others in the colonial society of the hunting station.
