Yes, there are many books, essays, articles, and poems written about Che Guevara's life. So, how about a movie portrayal?
When I first saw the movie Che, parts 1 and 2, I was taken by the location, the cinematography, Benicio del Toro's performance, and the screenplay. We pretty much understand Che's legacy. What was intriguing about the movie, aside from the portrayal's of Che's life, is how the cinematographers captured the richness of the land. The hardships of a revolutionary's life embedded in fighting for the soil beneath their feet.

As a child, I looked forward to the Fourth like it was Christmas in July. I wasn't especially patriotic or anything, it was just that the Fourth of July was the one day in the whole year when all of the kids ruled the neighborhood. We had a bike parade, an ice cream social, a block party that took up the whole street, and we shot off fireworks from the time we woke up until midnight, starting with caps and snakes in the daylight and ending with the most dramatic, colorful, and highest-flying for a nighttime spectacle (I didn't grow up in Denver so I wasn't breaking any laws!)
Sure hitting the blacktop with your bike is good for the environment but sometimes you have to answer the call of a souped up hot rod. Motor to the couch and jump behind the wheel of a custom ride adventure.
The Library has a variety of resources from hot rod flame painting to building your own but sometimes chillaxing with a good movie can be the best way to enjoy a hot rod. Interested only in NASCAR? Click here.
