Comandate! The diaries of.
Vivo como no te querian,
Amigo, Che comandante.
Y pudo como un nino,
O como un hombre puro, amigo.

Two days ago I finally got around to watching "The Motorcycle Diaries". The film was very good, and I am very happy that I watched it. It tells a story of young Ernesto Guevarra and his trip across the South America with his friend Alberto Grenado. The movie has great scenic shots, but also great people shots. Surely, the film has a lot of communist oriented propaganda, because it does show how did Ernesto grew to be a revolutionary from an upper class medical school student. But it's not obnoxious, it simply shows some shots of poor people who got screwed by the rapidly developing world. Besides, most of it is about the natives who were kicked off their land, which is much easier to watch than, say, opressed proletariat.

But overall - the movie is not political. It is about life, about a good and honest man who puts himself through a test and develops into an individual. Now I am inspired to watch more Che movies!

Queremos morir
Para vivir como tu has muerto.
Para vivir
Como tu vives, Che comandante!

You know, I like your movie reviews. But if I were to watch all that you recommend, that'd take up pretty much all of my time! I wonder how you can watch all the movies you like, those you don't like, plus go to school (at least attend, i assume?), go to parties that you describe and then write so much in lj? Колись, ты лунатик и в сне не нуждаешься. :-)

Я не лунатик, просто я своим временем правильно распряжаюсь. Я ещё успеваю спать до трёх дня, и учиться лучше всех. :) Такой вот я. Успевающий. :)

strangely enough I also got to see this movie a couple days ago or so, but honestly speaking, I was expecting something more... informative, I think. V celom neploho, no mogli bi nemnogo istorii tuda vse taki dobavit', ne dumaju chto kazhdij, kto smotrel etot fil'm, ocenil otnositel'noe otsutstvie propagandi.

А как-же цитата в самом начале и в конце? "This isn't a story of heroic feats, this is just a story of two lives that ran parallel for a while." Создатели как раз хотели показать Эрнесто именно как человека, а не как политика и революционера. Не каждый оценит, но каждый всегда не оценивает. А вот знающие люди поймут - фильм, где Че ещё даже не Че, а просто самый честный, смелый и самоотверженный, это что-то. Сам бы таким был.

Want to take a trip to South America with me and Andrew? The movie inspired us to try for a Spring Break trip to the Aztec pyramids next year. Care to tag along?

No idea yet. :) But very maybe. I do want to see the Aztec pyramids, so anything may happen.
