I saw 'The Motorcycle Diaries' last night, and I loved it to bits. It was so inspiring, and I actually went out today and bought the book. Che Guevara is one of my heroes, and I thought that just such a simple act of travelling can not only establish friendships, but open your eyes up to the world. In Che's case, also to poverty, suffering, and class differences. I knew about Che's future endeavours, but I hadn't known too much about his trip through Latin America. It also was fairly comical in parts. Fantastic movie, highly recommended for history buffs
You're not serious? Gael Garcia Bernal is my favourite actor of all time, I own almost every movie he's ever starred in. Don't be fooled by the romanticization of Guevara's life, it's not all it's cracked up to be, but he's still an inspirational figure for me.
I can't wait until Rudo y Cursi is released. Y tu Mama Tambien would have to be one of the greatest films of all time, so you must hire that one out sometime

Now that I've raved about Bernal, I'll get back to the topic.
I didn't know what to expect, and it started out very well. Then the story lost its way, I don't know if it was the adaption because I've never read the novels, but it was almost laughable in parts. Huge disappointment.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind-
Really touching story. Gondry is a genious, and I also recommend The Science of Sleep (again with Gael Garcia Bernal
). I feel like this was the safer film of the two having almost assured success, with The Science of Sleep being it's more risk weighted successor. It's the kind of film that requires patience and attention to detail, if you blink you might miss everything.
