Benicio Del Toro is CHE

The Argentine & Guerrilla, Directed by Steven Soderbergh. Screenplay Peter Buchman, part one inspired by "The Cuban Revolutionary War" by Ernesto Che Guevara, part two inspired by "The Bolivian Diary" by Guevara. No official website. No trailer.

Review in Festival Central

“I was drawn to Che as a subject for a movie (or two) not only because his life reads like an adventure story, but because I am fascinated by the technical challenges that go along with implementing any large-scale political idea. I wanted to detail the mental and physical demands these two campaigns required, and illustrate the process by which a man born with an unshakable will discovers his own ability to inspire and lead others.” - STEVEN SODERBERGH
