Homage to Che Guevara

A.O. Scott does not like Steven Soderbergh's movie about Che:
"...treat[s] complicated and consequential political events — the Cuban revolution, for starters, and nearly everything that followed, by implication — in purely tactical terms. The precision with which Mr. Soderbergh charts the progress of Castro’s army across the Cuban countryside — and the even greater meticulousness in his depiction of the unraveling Bolivian campaign — has something in common with the exertions of Civil War re-enactors or online gamers."
It's four hours long (actually a bit more). I think I'll wait for the dissertation comparing it to Lawrence of Arabia.
