Todd McCarthy is none too impressed with Steven Soderbergh’s Che, which he says needs to go “back to the drawing board” after a “defiantly non-dramatic four-hour, 18-minute presentation.”

• If Che weren’t bad enough, Variety‘s Anne Thompson reports that the global press corps was perturbed with the “tasteless white-bread sandwiches” offered at the film’s intermission. Some critics did not return for part two.

Variety reporter Elsa Bertet is on the scene at the after-party for the Clint Eastwood-narrated documentary You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story.

Variety interviews Il Divo director Paolo Sorrentino, who describes Italy’s efforts to shut down his movie about the Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti, who was acquitted of having mafia ties.
