Anyone also catch "Che" this weekend? Admittedly in very limited release, only 1 theatre each in NY and LA and only for a week before it disappears until January, when it will get a wider release as 2 separate movies. But this weekend, went to see the full 4 1/2 hour movie, plus 30 min intermission, at the Ziegfeld in NY. I liked the pic. First part, which largely covers the Cuba revolution, is stronger than the second, which deals with Che's attempt to start a revolution in Bolivia. Benicio del Toro turns in a fine performance, plausibly conveying the charisma of a man who was and has become, regardless of whether you agree with his politics, a folk hero. Soderbergh has probably never shot an ugly image and he's true to form here, there are many arresting visuals although no single shot stands out or lingers with me, like, for example, the amazing shot of the plane flying through the clouds in Michael Mann's "Miami Vice."

For those technically inclined, this is the first big pic shot with the 4K resolution Red One digital cameras. It was also digitally projected at the show I went to, although I assume the projector was a 2K machine so it's unclear how much of that extra 4K resolution is actually showing up on the screen.
