The Motorcycle Diaries

Richard Dorment

REVIEW: THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES (Focus) Directed by Walter Salles

Long before he became an icon of American hipster fashion, Che Guevera was a medical student, traveling across South America and experiencing all kinds of adventures and spiritual awakenings. With rich, sweeping cinematography, and Gael Garcia Bernal’s vigorous yet nuanced portrayal of the man who would launch a series of history-making revolutions, Salles delivers a thoughtful chronicle of Guevara’s legendary social consciousness in its nascent stages.
