Steven Soderbergh's Che Big In Cuba

Reuters reports that "Cubans over the weekend applauded a U.S. director's new movie on Ernesto "Che" Guevara for its accurate portrayal of his fabled role in Cuba's revolution."
  • Reuters would report that. I suppose if two Cubans liked the movie Reuters is technically accurate. I wonder how the families of Che's victims feel about it?
  • No shock that Hollywood would glorify a leftist murderer. Again.
  • No shock that "Havana festival organizers had said in July that "Che" would not be shown if it attacked Fidel Castro, the ailing 82-year-old who led Cuba for 49 years after taking power in the 1959 revolution." God forbid anything should question the party line. This from the people who purport to speak truth to power. Ass licking, useful idiot, commie stooges would be a more apt description.

What's next a glorious biopic of the much maligned Reinhard Tristan Eugen Heydrich, or is he the wrong type of murdering totalitarian thug?
