Editorial Reviews

In 1960, Cuban photographer Alberto Korda Díaz
snapped a photo of Ernesto Che Guevara. Eight years later, the image exploded throughout Europe and Latin America, where it became a symbol of protest and dissent. Today, the photograph remains one of the most dominant icons of the twentieth century. CHEVOLUTION is a film about a single photograph, and how this portrait, with its enigmatic gaze, became a symbol of countless visions for change.

This Marxist, murdering thug was responsible for anywhere between 400 and 2500 deaths via firing squads during the Cuban revolution. This film tries to make Guevara out to be this angelic savior of the downtrodden by overthrowing a corrupt administration and installing a nirvana in Cuba where everyone has everything they need. This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, everything this pig attempted he failed. Look at the Garden of Eden he left behind in Cuba.

The people in this film are at best delusional in their assessment of Guevara. In an attempt to re-write history they even go so far as to compare the corpse of Guevara to Christ! I almost choked. But everyone agrees that the image of Guevara was to be shared by all as a symbol of cooperation that spits in the eye of capitalism. That is until Guevara and Korda died. Then Korda's heiress and daughter decided to err on the side of capitalism and copyright the image. Ironic, isn't it? This whole film is a left wing, Marxist puff piece by those in desperate need of a hero where none exists. I suggest if you watch this to follow up by doing your own research to see who Guevara really was in life.

Like others before and after him, Che does not come without controversy. This documentary describes in great detail how the most famous photograph of the 20th century made its way around the globe and intricate details behind the original publisher and owner.

Chevolution is an exploration into the uses of the image of Dr. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna raising questions about the photo as well as the photographer, Alberto Korda, who caught Che in the perfect moment of defiance. It is persuasive in telling the story of the image from its highly charged origin at the funeral march following the terrorist attack on El Cubre against the young revolutionary Cuba to its least enduring use as a fashion statement. That said, it can initiate a discussion as to who was Guevara and why has his image continued to inspire struggles for social justice long after his death. His image was present during the recent Arab Spring leading one to suggest that the quest for equality, like the ideology of Che, may be eternal.

Format: DVD
about a third of the way in this absolute mess of a documentary runs out of steam and out of material and makes a real mess of everything, interviews with people who really have run out of anything useful to say jammed together in extreme and rapid jump cuts as if the editor cutter got paid by the cut. The most egregious moments towards the end are the anonymous young Miami gusanito earnestly preaching the gospel to Hate Che we read in other reviews here, that wearing a Che tee is to wear the shirt advocating a dogmatic marxist totalitarian blah blah blah when in fact Che is the great liberator and freedom fighter from freedom from all that oppresses us most now, and brutally so, the capitalists unfettered. Che remains undogmatic, not totalitarian, pure freedom, compassion, justice, equality, equity and love for one another. This is why he is worn now, and this film fails, falling down upon its own style into a messy cauldron of arty jumps signifying nothing.

Play the first section and call it a day. All that remains worthwhile to the end is the IRA's Jerry Adams; forget the rest as people who should have received brief snippets have long since run out of anything useful to say, and then that gusano is given TOO MUCH uninterrupted face time. Not to mention the producer . . .

Interesting for the circumstances under which this intense photo was taken, the bombing of Le Coubre cargo ship with impunity, but nothing mentioned of the USA's role in this deadly attack on a civilian target which left countless dead and wounded, causing a huge gathering in the central plaza in Havana.

So after a useful start this quickly falls entirely apart into weirdness of little to no value, and the prepackaged lies of the young gusano.
