Rumor has it that Criterion will be releasing them in the fall, but if you want them before month's end, you can get the UK imports, and a limited edition HMV copy.


There's info about them in the import subforum.

Be prepared to be frustrated.

I saw the roadshow. Glad I did it, was a very interesting watch, but an extremely frustrating experience. I'm still not sure I understand what Soderbergh was thinking when he put this project together.

It's like watching a Hitler biopic that glosses over the fact that he was responsible for the death of some 10 million people and solely focuses on his rise to power and how effective a leader he was.

I'm not comparing Che to Hitler per se, but there are certain aspects of someone so controversial you have to deal with, especially when you are putting almost 5 hours of his story on screen.

Mmmmmm I still really want to see it.. Soderbergh has been kind of hit or miss with me.

Criterion - no shit...

But, my buddy really enjoyed Part 1 and never saw part 2...

On their own terms, both movies are pretty well done. But like I said, they almost completely ignore everything bad that has ever been associated with the man, which is a major problem IMO.

I could almost buy the argument for a 2 hour film that there just isn't enough time to deal with it. But for a 5 hour, 2 part, extremely self-indulgent epic....
