CHE, El Argentino (CHE, Part 1), Steven Soderbergh. (Spain-France-USA, 2008) 134 min.

Che, parts 1 & 2, are shot in a cinéma vérité style, but each has different approaches to linear narrative (since they are historical reconstructions), camerawork, and the visual look; this duality is intended to be reflective of the 2 military campaigns' Che Guevara participated and their divergent outcomes.

Che, The Argentine begins as Che and a band of Cuban exiles (led by Fidel Castro) reach the Cuban shore from Mexico in 1956. Within 2 years, they mobilized popular support and an army and toppled the U.S.-friendly regime of dictator Fulgencio Batista.
