Guerrilla is Next for Soderbergh

I hope I am not the only who finds it particularly disturbing that Hollywood yet again is prepared to make a feature film adaptation of the life of Che Guevara, a treacherous and despicable Communist sympathizer, into that of a martyr. The Motorcycle Diaries were bad enough but now this is seriously crossing the line. Given how close Hollywood feels toward the once fibrant Communist community, I would not be surprised to see this hailed by critics and nominated for a series of award ceremonies when it is released.
