The instant I saw the below photo of Steven Soderbergh, allegedly taken during filming of The Argentine on or about 11.16.07, in Campeche, Mexico, I naturally said to myself, “Hey, Woody Allen in Bananas!” The Allen film, released in ’71, depicts a satirical version of the Cuban revolution in the make-believe country of San Marcos. Soderbergh’s The Argentine, one of two forthcoming dramas about Ernesto “Che” Guevara (being portrayed by Benicio del Toro), is a verite telling.
