    With the current speculation on whether his compatriot Fidel is still alive (or still dead), I thought it a propos to see who members think did the best film version of Che Guevara, from Omar Sharif in 1968's unintentionally campy Che! to Georges Corraface and Billy Zane's sci-fi versions of him in Escape from L.A. and CQ, respectively. Should there be any doubt, I'm not a Che fran.

    As I am not a commie, what bearing does that have on me? Who was _your_ favorite movie Che?

    Stay on topic, please. This is about Che on film, not about Manton being a tool of the bourgeoisie.

    Peter Falk, in a Twilight Zone episode. Wait, I think that was supposed to be Castro.

    If you want to jawbone about Castro, make your own poll. I think someone played him in the opening scenes to the first Naked Gun movie.

    Why do all these films celebrate a murderer?

    what exactly did Che do that is worthy of discussion or movies or whatever?

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

    Please keep the CE out of a movie discussion.

    To answer the OP, I'd vote Billy Zane in CQ but that's me. I think there's a new CHE movie out, is this the one with Del Toro?

    Fair point, but isn't it a bit difficult when Che (I'm not a fran) was nothing but political? How could a film not have some sort of political bias?

    From all photographic images, Che looked like a disheveled ragamuffin though one must admit, that celebrated picture of him really is superb iconography. However, I find this much more chic: [​IMG] Obscure South American military officers in the mid-century and someone with a Leica M-series camera photographing a dead revolutionary, how fun is that?

    Someone help me out here. What's more pathetic, some dupe walking around wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt, or Cameron Diaz walking around Peru's Machu Picchu carrying a green bag with a red star and the phrase "Serve the people" in Chinese. Someone?....Anyone?

    Cameron is worse, because she is rubbing the Peruvian's nose in their suffering. Easy for her to do, as a tourist from a Hollywood Hills.

    I never found Cameron Diaz to be particularly intelligent.
