|Any movie that paints Che as a saint really shows you how out there the Hollywood crowd is. I saw the Motorcycle Diaries and though beautfully done, it is a propaganda piece and not historical. If these new films are anything like that, covering a more controversial time in Che's life, I imagine they are even more distorted. They would have to gloss over a wagonload of murders he committed, including women and children. Che makes Bloody Bill Anderson look like a choir boy in comparison, although Andrson might have been a little cruder in his atrocities than Che (collecting ears), however Anderson was not as efficient a killer as Che was. Funny the movie shows him nobly killing a rapist, as I understand rape of prisoners was a favorite tool of his henchmen that he approved of. The guy was a terrorist and a murderer plain and simple.
If Hollywood stays the course, in 2060 we will get films glorifying Osama Bin Laden too.
