Terrorism Back On the Big Screen

Richard B. Woodward wrote an interesting piece for The Wall Street Journal about the recent film biographies of noted and notorious 20th Century terrorists.

I truly liked Carlos and The Baader-Meinhof Complex. I was stationed in Europe while serving in the U.S. Navy in the mid-1970s and I vividly recall the incidents depicted in these films.

I didn't care much for Che.

I thought director Steven Soderbergh was too enamored with his subject, communist revolutionary Che Guevara.

Guevara, in my view, was not a tragic and romantic figure. He was a communist thug and murderer.
