Oliver Stone, the controversial director who brought us Natural Born Killers, W, and Platoon, made a controversial documentary about the Cuban revolutionary and president Fidel Castro in 2002. The film was never broadcasted on television as planned because of an unfortunate incident involving Castro executing three US bound ferry hijackers and imprisoning more than 70 political dissidents.

‘Comandante’ is now available to watch on Vimeo and a huge thank you to IndieWire for putting this out there. Stone has made two other documentaries about Castro, but this is the only one that was pulled from release. Check it out with or without Stone’s commentary below.
