I saw it yesterday. I highly recommend y'all to download it, buy it, steal it, or rent it. It's quite good. It's an in-depth interview with Fidel Castro, leader of the Republic of Cuba. And gives quite a good background to things as well.

I found it very much insightful, on a person who's led a Socialist nation since 1959, not but 100 miles from the USA. Who's survived 611 assassination attempts against his person. And a nation that withstood an armed invasion when it's military was not too impressive.

He talks about how Cuba was being used as a tool between the games of the USA and the USSR. And how, out of all leaders of the USSR, he sympathized most with Khruschev.

All things I found interesting. There is talk of his former lovers, of his time with the rebels, and of his family. Definitely worth the watch. And hopefully y'all will learn a thing or two as well.

I'll download it if it appears in a P2P software.
