Benicio Del Toro beards up to play iconic and divisive Marxist crusader Ernesto 'Che' Guevara in this weighty two-part biopic from director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Oceans 11). The Argentine deals with the Cuban revolution, up to the toppling of dictator Fulgencio Batista, while Guerilla looks at Che's later life, from 1964 up to his execution in the Bolivian mountains in 1967 (where he'd been instigating another uprising).

Best Actor (Del Toro), Cannes Film Festival 2007.
