A Marine hunches over the body of his fallen comrade, both hands on the wounded man's chest -- giving comfort, checking for a heartbeat or stanching the flow of blood. A cigarette, burned almost to the filter, remains clenched between his teeth, left over from the peace of a moment ago. His gun still in its holster across his back, he looks up through the mesh of tall grass that hides the enemy. His eyes are thick with fear, anger, defiance.

In the year President Clinton initiates a dialogue about race relations in America, there's a side argument taking place regarding Steven Spielberg's "Amistad." Despite a respectable two-week box-office total of $9.7 million in limited release--50% from African American audiences, according to DreamWorks--there's the perception the film isn't performing up to expectations, suffering from doubts about the film's veracity and about Spielberg, indeed, any white man, as the director.
