Che: Guerilla

If Che: The Argentine showed the rise of Guevara as an inspiring leader in Cuba, part two of Soderbergh's epic documents his fall, a decade later, during his attempt to spearhead a revolution in the jungles of Bolivia. Benicio Del Toro is outstanding again as a man whose political vision and belief in his methods kept him fighting on despite an overwhelming opposition funded by the CIA, failing health and apathy and betrayal from the poor people he was fighting for.
