Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

The real Che by Anthony Daniels

The real Che by Anthony Daniels: "The film clearly intends to suggest that Guevara was a youthful idealist, and that his idealism--so generous, so disarming--was the source of his later opinions and activities, such as his liberal and open-handed signing of death sentences after perfunctory trials, his support of regimes that had killed millions and scores of millions, and his wish that much of the population of the world should be immolated in a nuclear war for the sake of an alleged point of principle. The film is thus the cinematic equivalent of the Che Guevara T-shirt; it is morally monstrous and emotionally trivial. "
