I don't think The Lost City does. It was made by Andy Garcia, who hates Che.

The Che-lite in Escape from L.A. turns out to be quite the baddy too.

And I believe the Omar Sharif Che movie was made for squares.

I find people's adulation of Che -- generally without much understanding or knowledge of what he did -- inane.

I realize it's highly fictionalized, but you should have included Banderas's role in Evita. That's the Che that the world wants to believe in.

You celebrate murderers daily.

Faintly on-topic, the portrayal of Castro in If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? is the greatest.

Man, Omar Sharif gets no love here.

What about Antonio Banderas in Evita? He sings.

Che, but no cigar -- he doesn't play a Che with the surname Guevara, or a character based on him.

He has done more for the fashion industry than he did for "his people" or whatever.

Well 'his people' were Argentineans, so…not much.

Very swarthy looking. I can't do the whole pseudo-revoultionary thing as green is quite unbecoming on me and I have gotten very used to my daily Aqua di Parma shaving regimen. Also, only frogs should wear berets.

I think the Lost City portrays him much more accurately than most movies out there b/c most Hollywood producers seem to be enamored with his supposed idyllic philosophies of an equitable society. The guy was an assasin, a poor military leader, and by most accurate accounts, a bad guy.

Andy Garcia may or may not hate Che, but I bet you he has more accurate accounts of what the real "Che" was like. Even if he did hate Che, is that so different than a producer who admires him (i.e. Redford)?

Hey hey, Homestyle, I'm not disputing that. So are you voting for Jse Garcia or Omar "Che"rif?

It's very hard to answer a poll like this without having seen all of the options. I'll go with the best of the few ones I've seen
