Movie review: Che 1

Che 1 available at Amazon
Through the course of an interview (in black and white), Che Guevarra recounts events from the Cuban Revolution (in color). Much of the movie is in Spanish with subtitles.

---------------
I thought the movie was very well made. It being in Spanish (even with subtitles), I found it harder than I expected to follow. I don't feel like I know much more about the revolution than I did to start. Probably should have paid better attention. This is a long film, and ends with the end of the major conflict, but continues in Part 2 with "the real revolution."

I watched this as one of the 50 best movies never nominated for an Oscar, for my 3rd 101 things in 1001 days.
