    Two Part Bio-Pic about Che Guevara

    Director:
    Steven Soderbergh

    Starring:
    Benicio Del Toro-Che Guevara
    Demian Bichir-Fidel Castro
    Franka Potente-Tamara Bunke
    Benjamin Bratt
    Lou Diamond Philips-Mario Monje
    Edgar Ramirez-Ciro Rondon
    Catalina Sandino Moreno



    Plot Outline:
    Guerrilla:
    Guerrilla is a 2008 biopic about Argentine-born medic and revolutionary leader Ernesto "Che" Guevara (1928-1967), most famous for being a key leader in Fidel Castro's forces against Fulgencio Batista. After his work in Cuba, Che moved on to other causes in Africa and Latin America, eventually being captured and killed by counter-insurgency rangers in the mountains of Bolivia, who had backing from C.I.A.

    The Argentine:
    "The Argentine will focus on the Cuban revolution, from the moment Fidel Castro, Guevara and other revolutionaries landed on the Caribbean island, until they toppled the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista two years later. Guerrilla will focus on the years following the Cuban revolution. It will begin with Che's trip to the UN headquarters in New York in 1964, until his death in the Bolivian mountains in 1967."

    Why do guys un-groomed beards always seem to be getting into trouble?

    Cool! I haven't seen those of Benicio!

    Looking forward to this. El Che Guevara is my favourite historical figure of the 20th century

    He doesn't look half bad there.

    Can't wait to see a trailer, which should be coming our way soon.

    isn't he pretty much just a glorified terrorist?

    Well, I'm not saying I wanna be exactly like him :)

    And I think he wasn't really a terrorist, but more like a warrior (wich is not OK either). What I like about him is the way he lived up to his ideals... You know those heroes in fiction that live lifes of sacrifice, and never betray their principles? he was like that, and that was why he died...

    Javier Bardem, Ryan Gosling, and Benicio del Toro?

    Awesome cast.

    Hopefully this doesn't give rise to a new surge in dumb teens wearing his shirts although they have no clue who he is. To me he was a hypocrite who blamed capitalism for people's suffering yet he himself caused much suffering by taking many lives including innocents.

    Yeah, Wiki was incorrect a few days ago on another movie I was looking into. So by no means are they definitive sources for anything.

    I've seen the last one, but the rest are pretty stunning. Another thumbs up for Donnie. :up:
