Che is brilliant… the first half is, for me,incandescent — a piece of full-on realism about the making of the Cuban revolution that I found utterly believable and politically vibrant and searing. It’s what I’d hoped for and more.Benicio del Toro’s Guevara portrayal is, as expected,a flat-immersion that can’t be a “performance”as much as a knock-down ass-kick inhabiting…The second half, also known as Guerilla, equally delighted although it’s a different kind of film — tighter, darker (naturally, given the story).
…it’s safe to say that it’s the most ambitious
movie from an American director since the 1970s.
I’ve never seen anything quite like it in Cannes.

Che is a very good biographical drama.
Bold, beautiful, bleak and brilliant,
Che’s not just the story of a revolutionary;
in many ways, it’s a revolution in and of itself.
