Motorcycle Diaries...
Last night, after another turkey dinner with my grandparents, I finally had the chance to see The Motorcycle Diaries, a film I've been wanting to see for almost a year now. It's the story of Che Guevara when he was 22/23, and travelling around South America, from his home in Argentina to Columbia. It shows a bit of how this trip and the injustice he saw in the various countries, changed his life. I like the quote from the film, "You gotta fight for every breath and tell death to go to hell".
But my favourite is:
Let the world change you... and you can change the world

I guess live long and prosper wasn't the way of the world in the 50's & 60's.

I'll have to see if I can find that one on dvd. Sounds interesting.

I actually borrowed it from the public library. You might be surprised at the films they've got (for free!).

I'll check the Calgary public library. I get some stuff from them but never thought to check.
