anarresti's rating of the film Comandante

Oliver Stone is an interesting interviewer. The sound of Castro's wife (the translator) can be nerve wrecking, because it clashes with the soundtrack and with Castro's and Oliver Stone's voice. The interview does focus on the Cuban missile crisis, and on other unconfortable topics not letting the conversation be just a celebration of the Cuban revolution and Castro's merits. But the tension exists. We see it.
