torn between two biopics

I kind of want to see Werner Herzog's attempt at an action flick, Rescue Dawn, just because I love Jeremy Davies (especially since he might be playing someone who's gone insane), but I'm not sure I'm up for scene after scene of Christian Bale getting tortured (especially since I know he's secretly Batman and could beat up everbody in that POW camp).

But Talk to Me is probably going to win out, because it has Don Cheadle starring as 60s & 70s radio sensation and community activist Petey Green. Plus it's got Chiwetel Ejiofor (Serenity, Kinky Boots) who is always awesome. And I loved director Kasi Lemmons' last two films (Caveman's Valentine and Eve's Bayou).
