Che: Part One and Part Two

I simply cannot bother with the politics around this Steven Soderbergh pair of biopics concerning the revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara other than to say such politics must have been behind the omission of Benicio Del Toro from the Oscars. His work here, often low key, is beyond amazing as are the films themselves often resembling home movies rather than a big production. While released in two parts one is best to catch or rent them together. A bit of a long haul at over four hours but well worth the effort as it allows you to submerge in what can honestly be called a thinking person's war film.
