5.0 out of 5 stars Good Balanced Documentary December 20, 2008
Format:DVD
Just got done watching this documentary. I thought it was pretty good. It was long enough to cover the subject pretty well and the part that I like the most is that it was balanced in its view of the subject. Che' was portrayed as both an icon and a savior and also as a murderer and fanatic. They had lots of interviews with people who were involved, who knew him and who both loved and hated him. Also a lot of good footage and pictures of the man. If you are interested in the subject or even if you aren't I think you will find the documentary interesting and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balanced and unbiased December 27, 2009
By Al B.
Format:DVD
This is truly a wonderful, insightful documentary. Che was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, intellectual, guerrilla leader, diplomat, military theorist, and major figure of the Cuban Revolution. I know all the negative reviews come from Cuban-Americans who's famalies fled Cuba in fear of having to be equal with Afro-Cubans, God forbid. If you need proof look at the famalies who fled during the revolution, white, wealthy Cubans who could not imagine sharing their wealth with Cubans of color. The U.S.-backed Cuban general, President and dictator Fulgencio Batista was corrupt and sold out his country along with other wealthy Cuban famalies to the highest bidder. Cuba was being raped by US corporations and the Mafia while Batista and his wealthy friends turned a blind eye so they could line their pockets with dirty money, money being made on the backs of the poor Cuban people. "Brothels flourished. A major industry grew up around them: Government officials received bribes, policemen collected protection money. Prostitutes could be seen standing in doorways, strolling the streets, or leaning from windows. One report estimated that 11,500 of them worked their trade in Havana. Beyond the outskirts of the capital, beyond the slot machines, was one of the poorest, and most beautiful countries in the Western world. " -- David Detzer, American journalist, after visiting Havana in the 1950s.
Che may not have been perfect but he did believe in equality, so much that he sacrificed his life defending the poor and opressed people of Latin America. Great story told very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars a well-made documentary December 20, 2011
Format:DVD
Just finished viewing this documentary, and wanted to write a review to balance the four one-star reviews!

The makers of this documentary succeeded in presenting a fair and even-handed portrayal of the life of Che Guevara. I went into it with a moderately strong bias against the man. (I tend to dislike revolutionaries, who generally seem to me brutal and narcissistic.) After viewing it, I am still not a fan, but I am more sympathetic to him than I was before. It's the kind of sympathy that comes from better understanding.

Those on the Far Right will find this portrait to be too sympathetic; those on the Far Left won't like the filmmaker's refusal to make excuses for Che's brutality. Whenever you piss off both extremes, you're probably doing something right.

4.0 out of 5 stars neo Doc May 21, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Its a good documentary in the fact that it brings to light other people in the revolution, and it has this kind of new way of presenting the man, with lots of hard guitar in the background to make him seem "radical" i guess. Jon Anderson the author of one of the best bio's on him is interviewed many times, also there are interviews with American soldiers who fought in the revolution,which is very interesting to get to see them. Overall it is one of the better documentaries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair Enough December 2, 2009
Format:DVD
I often view western productions regarding the life of any self-proclaimed socialist/Marxist/anarchist with a great deal of skepticism. The same skepticism I would have if I were in Cuba today with a book about Milton Friedman. However, I believe this documentary gave a relatively balanced look into the life of the world's most famous icon.

The documentary is primarily narrated by one of the greatest authorities on the history of Che, author of "Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life", John Lee Anderson. Much time is also given to Felix Rodriguez, the CIA operative who interrogated and carried out orders to execute Che. In one of the best parts of the documentary, American teens who were in Cuba at the time and joined Castro's rebel force, speak on their experiences during and after the revolution. References to Americans assisting in the Cuban revolution are normally quite obscure.

The documentaries greatest success is that is forces you to think regardless of how you personally feel about the man. The tendency when exploring the life of Che is to make him a mini-Castro who posses few thoughts of his own outside of Fidel's authoritarian vision (Fidel's supposed socialism is also called into question). No such perspective is given here. Che is presented as a vocal opponent of both the USSR and subsequently the Cuban Communist Party. He's portrayed as a humanist and completely selfless, commonly sacrificing his one free day of the week to volunteer with the peasantry. Militarily Che is also portrayed as being quite the leader during the Cuban revolution.

Conversely the more controversial moments of Che's history are not neglected. Che's summary executions of traitors is explored on several occasions.
