Whether dismissed as a relic or revered as a savior, all agree that Fidel Castro, nearing 44 years as the leader of Cuba, is one of the most influential and controversial figures of our time. Rarely are Americans given a chance to see inside the world of this socialist leader. The new documentary film FIDEL by Estela Bravo offers a unique opportunity to view the man through exclusive interviews with Castro himself, historians, public figures and close friends, with rare footage from the Cuban State archives.

Alice Walker, Harry Belafonte, and Sydney Pollack discuss Fidel as a person, while former and current US government figures including Arthur Schlesinger, Ramsey Clark, Wayne Smith, Congressman Charles Rangel and a former CIA agent offer political and historical perspectives on Castro and the long-standing US embargo against Cuba. Family members and close friends, including Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, offer a window into the rarely seen personal life of Fidel.

Bravo's camera captures Fidel Castro swimming with bodyguards, visiting his childhood home and school, joking with Nelson Mandela, Ted Turner and Muhammad Ali, meeting Elian Gonzalez, and celebrating his birthday with members of the Buena Vista Social Club. Juxtaposing the personal anecdotal with history of the Cuban revolution and the fight to survive the post-Soviet period, FIDEL tells a previously untold story and presents a new view of this compelling figure.

Made for Britain's Channel 4, Dollan Cannell's dynamic documentary may be non-fiction, but it often plays like pitch-black comedy. While screen history has produced King Kong, Godzilla, and other seemingly indestructible creatures, Fidel Castro's close calls and near misses put most such fictional characters to shame. As Cannell claims, "More people have tried to murder the world's most famous Socialist than any man alive." The director examines the reasons opponents have been gunning for Cuba's president for over four decades. Diplomats, activists, secret agents, and would-be assassins provide potential answers. The consensus is that Castro turned out to be more of an oppressor than the liberator he promised to become. Cannell then looks at some of the bizarre methods employed, from poison milkshakes to exploding cigars. Stylistically, he alternates between archival footage (including clips from crime films and television shows) and contemporary interviews. He further jazzes up the proceedings with a retro thriller soundtrack. This keeps things moving along, although more concrete information, like specific dates, would've been nice. That said, Fabian Escalante's companion book, Executive Action: 634 Ways To Kill Fidel Castro, helps to fill in some of those gaps. In the end, Cannell isn't making fun of Castro--or his country--but riffing on the parallels between the leader's real-life misadventures and the cinematic kind. The phrase "stranger than fiction" predates El Presidente, but when it comes to the Beard, all bets are off. Extras include interviews with Cannell and former President Jimmy Carter. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
