Poster Boy

Robert Redford has produced a biopic celebrating Ché that is premiering at Bobby's little Sundance soiree for 5,000 of his closest friends. At least not everyone is completely taken in:

Movies often reshape public perceptions of history, much as time yellows the pages of history books. Likely to be overlooked in this instance is the fact that Guevara, when he was a little older than he appears in the movie, preached a gospel of violence and advocated a nuclear showdown with the United States during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962.
