At his hero worshipping worst, Oliver Stone continues to re-write history with another stupefying portrayal of left wing zealots who have stamped out all freedom of speech. Pathetic, Oliver. You should be ashamed.

A 'soft documentary' from Oliver Stone; something we in the US dont arent commonly exposed to by our media. This is a documentary that needed to be presented with 2 parts, in order to add an additional layer of meat to the bones, if you will. Not a Michael Moore style documentary.

@Borgia: Most of Latin American governments are left compared to the US. Even Chile has nationalized copper industry. Colombia has been running drugs for the US for decades. You're going to get an American puppet slant. That doesn't leave very many nations left.

Oliver Stone should have interviewed other Latin American Presidents as well, Not only the leftist ones.

Does anyone know where you can watch this movie in the USA? Has it been released in the USA yet?

South of the Border's subjects are masters at cooking bullshit, and Stone just eats it up. Full Review
The documentary offers little genuine information and no investigative research, adopting a style even more polemical than Stone’s earlier docus on Fidel Castro and Yasser Arafat. Full Review
New York Daily News
Unabashedly one-sided, this biography of Chvez - and several other Latin American politicians - does raise some valid concerns about what Stone calls the "manipulative power of the media." So it's too bad he's as guilty of partisanship as the right-wing outlets he reviles. Full Review

Stone's film, more an act of boosterism than inquiry, is a tremendous missed opportunity. Full Review
Offers valuable historical, social and political context, particularly if you aren't an international-news junkie. Full Review
