Time Machine: The True Story of Che Guevara (2007)

Yes his name lives on in all the glorious revolutions of the world still. Not!
Ni'lin takes up the leadership of non-violent resistance to oppression and occupation.'
Che's words that solidarity is "not a matter of wishing success to the victim of aggression, but of sharing his fate; one must accompany him to his death or to victory".


From his famous motorcycle trips to his historic role in the Cuban Revolution, Argentinean revolutionary Che Guevara is profiled in a documentary produced to explore the life of the man whose visage has become an iconic symbol of hard left politics. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Theatrical Feature Running Time: 91 mins
Time Machine: The True Story of Che Guevara (2007)
Chancho as pig (dirty person) in Spanish was used to describe Che when young and notable as having a "week shirt" which seems obvious what that means. Ernesto was also nicknamed "Chancho" (pig) by his schoolmates, because he rarely bathed, and proudly wore a "weekly shirt".

Other than some coloring of this individual the made for History Channel movie was not worth it for really dwelling into his life as much as I wanted. Maybe there really is not much tape of him talking and just a few pictures spread around, which adds to the mystery of this man that was a ruthless as any other petty dictator.

I am glad that Che did not get the reigns of power in Cuba and that Castro put him in his place.

I am sad that you've fallen into the usual right-wing nonsense of dismissing a man based on what you've been told by biased sources that he's done.
It's like dismissing the Bible because you can't be bothered to read it and because someone said it was nonsense.
Have you read anything by Ché ?
Maybe you should.
It's bad to be ignorant.

Hey, what can I say. Seems that Boudu has seen fit to comment. But this is only the beginning, I got more Che written movie reviews to come...
Anyway I think I can get an idea of his thinking without reading another boring tome by some nut case.

Next time Boudu, leave your name since it makes conversing so much better.

Well, well, well Boudu left another post and I missed it:

You're a very connedfused person, Ron.
On one hand, you sneer and postulate about subjects you haven't made the slightest effort to research and understand, then you get all snarky when this is pointed out ?

As well, you jeer that you won't even MAKE the effort to diminish your ignorance, instead you'll just continue to trot along to your propaganda programming. Odd.
Boudu, I only have to be only slightly less confused than you. Certainly did read Fuser's own words as in: Our America and Theirs
Kennedy and the Alliance for Progress —
The Debate at Punta del Este

And yes did get to see some more of Che's life in:
The Motorcycle Diaries (2003)
and...
El Che: Investigating a Legend (1998)

Yes as always you are odd that I told you about Fuser and his willingness to kill millions out of his blind hatred of the USA and you seem to be under the same ideology, but I am sure you have not watched the movies or even explored these aspects...

Carry on...
