I'm inclined to believe that's what they call an "opinion", not the "truth".


What is truth? Is truth unchanging law? We both have truths! Are mine the same as yours?

It seriously is hard to watch. I have yet to make it through in one sitting, yet I can listen to the OCR over and over.... The first time my mom saw it, she (not being a musicals person) got only about a half-hour into it before declaring it "unwatchable"

And I always get annoyed when Antonio Banderas looks into the camera. You're really not supposed to do that in films..

I thought it was great. Madonna and Antonio were okay in their roles (I actually liked the Che I saw in a community theater a lot more), not the best, but at least okay. What I liked was the production design. You could actually still see it being a show for the stage rather than being morhped into another Hollywood-style film. It looked both realistic and unrealistic at the same time. If that makes sense.

Madonna was adequate. her singing wasnt up to par with Lupone at all. she made Eva too sympathetic as well. Banderas was strong,Pryce brilliant in his subtlty. the film over all was a failed attempt but not without good moments.

I thought Madonna was a great actress, but she's an alto by the sound of it. Her "A New Argentina" was pathetic. The OCR's Evita had such a strong Soprano...Madonna is a weak pop-queen.

Of course she's awful. But I love her in Evita.

I agree with Salome on all counts, except or Banderas. I didn't like his Che very much, although his performence was better than Madonna's. Pyrce was the best in it.
