Che: Part One

very good film about a legend

che guevara is certainly a controversial figure in history... and a cultural icon, therefore any film about him will bring up strong emotions and opinions. steven soderbergh does his best to show the life of ernesto guevara from many angles. in part 1 we see him rise up through the cuban revolution to become the leader he was known as. benecio del toro is amazing (as usual!) and really brought the man to life. the epic 2 part saga is very long and somewhat drawn out. that's my biggest complaint, it dwells on many insignificant events, as well as long battle scenes that don't do much for the story. this is definitely the better of the 2 parts.
