Che :: The Story of a Revolutionary

Well tonight I watched what ended up being about a 5 hours long movie (plus some change). The movie documented the life of Ernesto Che Guevara, Cuban & Bolivian / Latin American revolutionary. Beside being a really long movie, probably the longest movie I have ever seen, and beside being kinda slow, it was really really good!

I have read a few books on the life of Che Guevara, most recently Death of a Revolutionary and this booked documented Che’s time in Bolivia as he tried to stir a Latin American revolution.

This movie, which was shown in two parts told the story, first of his Cuban revolution along side Fidle Castro. The second part of the movie document about the exact same thing as Death of a Revolutionary, his time in Bolivia.

The movie is currently playing at The Belcourt Theatre in Nashville. It you have a spare 5 hours ? I would recommend that you go see it.

I find myself really fascinated with the like of Ernesto Che Guevara and this movie gives a really solid picture of his time fighting for the revolution and some of the experiences he had along with the principles he lived and fought by.

I will post some more thoughts this week but for now… go see it for yourselves.

Peace :: the way to real Revolution Erik
