Picking up in 1965 one year after his United Nations speech, part two of Steven Soderbergh's 'Che' films rightly earns the title of epic once the entire scope and massive breadth of vision is fully absorbed. Again, it's a remarkable achievement and, while we're fine with seeing it in two parts, it's probably all the more breathtaking in one sitting if you're that fervent a cineaste.
Del Toro is once again immersively perfect, tranquil and solemn; asserting a man in command who rarely raises his voice with and passionate empathy for human kind that's all in the eyes. This inner, nuanced performance embodies so much dignity and respect.
Demián Bichir, Joaquim de Almeida and Yul Vazquez also do fantastic jobs as Fidel Castro, the Bolivian Presiden René Barrientos and Acting Minister of the armed forces, Major Juan Almeida respectively.
