"The Motorcycle Diaries is an intoxicating movie, chronicling the young Che Guevara's travels around South America in the early 50s. It's a visually stunning road movie where the most important journey takes place within its hero's head - Guevera going from disaffected medical student to rebel with a cause. If it all sounds worthier than a Morning Star editorial meeting, don't be misled: this is serious fun and one of the best movies of 2004."
