soderbergh takes on che

Maybe we'll finally have a film that portrays Ernesto "Che" Guevara to be the monster that he was, rather than glorifies him. If so, will all those little punks in America stop wearing those stupid t-shirts?
VENICE, ITALY - Director Steven Soderbergh will use recently declassified CIA files to make a $20 million film that's likely to puncture the romantic myth of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, who gained cult status for his role in the 1959 Cuban revolution.
Neither Mr. Guevara's interest in torture and firing squads, documented by the poet Armando Valladares, nor his remark after the Cuban Missile Crisis -- that he would have fired nuclear weapons at the United States -- were covered in the recent art-house hit "The Motorcycle Diaries." The revolutionary activist also called for "a dozen Vietnams."
